I have a reasonable amount of practice growing things from seed but I recently spread a whole packet of strawberry seed at the right depth and didn't get a single sprouter.

I'm hoping to get some pro-tips on how to grow strawberry from seed.

The packet said I could grow them in place so I didn't try growing in trays.

I live in Sydney Australia and the temperature here has been in the mid 20s with a reasonable amount of rain.

If you have had experience growing strawberries from seed can you give me some suggestions.

  • I assume that is mid 20s Celsius? Not fahrenheit!? – winwaed Feb 16 '12 at 13:45

    If it's raining ice by the ocean I don't think you are growing strawberries XD (I'm sure he/she means 20 C) – WienerDog Feb 16 '12 at 17:35

Depending on the type of strawberry seed they may need cold stratification for 2-3 months. This can be done by having the seeds in the fridge during this time.
