  • strawberry seeds, including alpine strawberries, need to be cold-treated before planting. Wrap the seeds and put them in the freezer for about a month. Let them warm up slowly.
  • Germinate strawberry seeds by placing them under a thin layer of soil and keeping them moist.
  • When the plants get their second set of true leaves, thin them out, leaving three to four inches between plants. Or, replant them into separate containers.
  • Once the plants are big enough to plant in the garden, remember to introduce them to the outdoors gradually. Start by setting them outside for a few hours in the afternoon, adding an hour or two each day.
  • Transplant your plants into your garden. Pinch off the first flowers so that your plants will develop strong roots.
