Hoping for Big Things

I spotted some seeds of giant strawberries for sale so I thought I would give them a try. The seeds spent about 3 weeks in the freezer, as per the instructions, and are now sown in pots on the kitchen windowsill. Now it is a waiting game to see whether they start growing as, apparently, they are not an easy plant to get started. The seeds are tiny as can bee seen with the two I found still in their plastic bag, now planted with the others:


The 5p coin is about 19mm across.

I wonder whether this is a similar variety to the Spanish strawberries available in shops at the moment.


  1. I love strawberries John. Hope you're successful with them.
    They look so big, they could be a meal for one!

    1. Keith: Same here. I buy them most of the year round though for taste you can't beat our home grown varieties. The very large ones are not as tasty or juicy but still welcome on my meal table.

  2. The good thing about Strawberry plants is that even if you only get one or two to grow from the seed you can always get more later from the runners they will put out.


Thank you for visiting. Hope you enjoyed the pictures. Any comment, or correction to any information or identification I get wrong, is most welcome. John
