condition: new
My garden is being overrun from missing the thinning window last year for the strawberry patch. I usually get a couple of gallons of the tiniest, sweetest strawberry you can eat. This is the strawberry that is native to North America and in sun it spreads continually. It grows well in pure shade as well, just not as aggressively. I have about 300 ft of a patch in both sides and usually only get to pick 1/4 of the patch every year to give you a sense of berry production. The entire patch grew from 3 plants planted 8 years ago, with the other 150ft getting transplants about 5 years ago.

The plants also work as free mulch, going dormant and barely above the soil in winter. I’ve had no soil erosion since I planted these alpine strawberries.

Take one plant for $2, 6 plants for $10, or 16 plants for $20. I’ll include any runners free of charge.

Morning is the best time to pick up and replant, but an evening pick up can work as well. The strawberries are fruiting right now so you’ll have to wait until next year (the plants will also shock and focus on roots this year, all the plants included in the price will be fruiting adult plants).

Additional runners (3-4 baby plants) can be thrown in for larger sales.
