3. Growing from Seeds
Strawberry plants are one of the easiest plants in the berry family to grow directly from seeds, and it’s part of why they’re an exceptionally great choice for first-time gardeners and anyone who wants to start experimenting with the addition of berries to their garden.
If you’re growing strawberry plants from seeds, the best way possible to ensure that they take within the ground is to germinate the seeds between simple layers of tissue paper before placing them in the ground. This ensures that they undergo the most vital parts of the initial germination stage outside of the ground (where they could be exposed to the elements), and it makes transplantation to the ground a lot easier.
Planting from seeds directly into the ground often results in a significant amount of seeds that don’t “come up” when they should – but the tissue paper trick is one that will work every time for a variety of different plants.
