Wild Strawberry

Price: $ 5.00

Fragraria vesca

Low growing, vigorous hardy perennial which spreads rapidly by runners creating a useful edible ground cover - one 'weed' you and the kids are definitely not going to complain about! Pretty white flowers are followed by small (15mm) deliciously sweet red berries. The leaves can also be dried and used for tea - as well as being tasty this is said to be a good internally as a blood tonic and externally to relieve sunburn. Enjoys full sun or part shade, and tolerant of most soil conditions. As with garden strawberries, pine needles make a suitable mulch. 10cm high. 9cm pot.
