10 Strawberry Recipes You Will Love
When I purchased my seeds online from various companies via Amazon, it was later than I hoped for, and I wasn't ready when it was time to plant, but I managed to scrape enough resource with little cash as I could to get some seedlings started. Unfortunately, my strawberry seeds were last to arrive, so I am just now beginning to seed them into pots that I will leave outside in the sun since Spring has sprung :)
Some strawberry seeds need to be cold treated prior to germination, so make sure to check the specific requirements for the type of strawberries you grow, before you plant them indoors.
If necessary, cold treat your seeds by wrapping them in plastic and freezing them for a minimum of 2 weeks, but try to give them 30 days.
After freezing, transfer your seeds to the refridgerator for 4 days to a week. then move them again to a cool but slightly warmer place for a few more days until they reach room temperature.
Pay close attention to the variety you use as well as whether or not the nursary may have already cold treated them. Skip this step if they have already been cold treated.
