    Double the Delight! Why choose between growing flowers or fruit? This wonderful plant is both highly ornamental and it produces tasty fruit on ever-bearing plants. The semi-double flowers are gorgeous in their own right and lip-smacking sweet strawberry together all summer. It's a little like having your cake and eating it too. Planting in a container will show off the fruit to best effect, but it can also be grown in gardens. Short runners can develop over time, which may add a trailing element to the plant.  These runners can be trimmed back, if you prefer to do so or can be left as is. The 12-16" tall, mounding plants are just the right size for your patio pots or hanging baskets. They will flower and produce fruit the season they are planted if you buy plants or start seeds indoors, which means the plant can be grown as an annual. However, they are also quite hardy and will be perennial in zones 4-9.

    Uses Notes: 

    Best used in containers, where the fruit can be shown off and easily picked. However, they can also work in gardens.

    Maintenance Notes: 

    To keep your Berried Treasure plant looking its best, the soil  should be kept evenly moist and using a regular fertilization program will produce the most prolific berry crop.

    Even if the plants are started by seed, they should set fruit in the first year and those purchased as plants in spring will certainly produce fruit in the first season. 


    Growing Berried Treasure from Seed:

    If you are growing Berried Treasure from seed, starting the seeds indoors will give the plants a head start, which will result in ripe fruit earlier in the season.

    Seed Prep - Strawberry seeds will germinate better if they are chilled in your freezer or refrigerator for 3-4 weeks prior to planting. 

    Planting - Once seeds have received their chill period, start them indoors 8 weeks before the last frost in your area. The seeds should germinate in ​about 2-3 weeks, ​but could take a little longer. S​trawberry seeds are tiny and should be sown on the soil surface.

    All of the Berried Treasure varieties perform similarly, however, there are some differences. White flowers are typical for strawberries and are therefore the easiest plants to develop, with pink not far behind. Red flowers, however, are a much more difficult color to develop. While all of the Berried Treasure plants grow well and set fruit prolifically, we have noted that Berried Treasure Red does tend to be slower to germinate. The key to successful germination is to keep the humidity high during the whole germination period. If you are growing all three colors, expect the red to take longer and be sure to keep the humidity high until all of the seedlings are growing well.

    Thinning - If the seedlings are crowded, you may want to thin them to allow more robust growth of the remaining seedlings.

    Transplant - Plant the seedlings outdoors about 3 weeks after the threat of frost is past. ​If you live where frost isn't a concern, that will be about 11 weeks after planting the seeds. Plant 3 or more seedlings per container, depending on container size.  In the landscape, plants should be spaced 18-24" apart. Rows should be about 36" apart.

    Grow your strawberries in at least 6 hours of direct sun a day. More sun is desirable and will help produce a bumper crop of fruit.

    The plants should be kept evenly moist and fed regularly for the best results.

    • I planted these last year for my neighbor. They were slow to grow with beautiful flowers. The produce a tasty berry. I am hoping they grow back as a perennial.

    • I bought all 3 varieties and followed the instructions. I got some germination... after 3 months of caring for them, they are about a inch tall.. no growth past that in the past month. Very disappointed with these.

    • I bought all 3 varieties of the Berried Treasure Strawberry seeds. (Red, Pink, and White.) I followed ALL of the directions on the back of the seed packets. I had EXCELLENT germination! I planted 2 seeds per cell and had ALL seeds germinate except for 2! I am extremely pleased with my seed purchase and am so excited to continue watching my strawberry plants grow! *I planted my seeds in the Grow-ease self watering seed starting trays from Gardner’s Supply. I left the humidity dome on until all of the seeds had sprouted. It did take much longer than some of my other plants I started from seed.

    • Same as other commenters - Proven Loser. I order a lot from PW and have always been pleased - until now. Did all the right things as indicated on the seed packet. Ended up with 4 tiny seedlings (out of 2 packets of seeds) that may or may not make it. V. Frustrating for all the time and effort put into these. I would not recommend buying the seeds at all!

    • Very disappointed with the few seeds in each packet. Followed the instructions on the cold stratification and still little to no germination from the pink, white, and zero from the red seeds. Very disappointed considering the cost of the packets.

    • Very poor germination for the Red and White Berried Treasure. I am very experienced with sowing seeds. Even with allowing them to be in the freezer for four weeks as suggested only 1 out of 30 seeds germinated. Super disappointing

    • I could only afford to order 1 packet of the berried treasure red seeds, as the seeds were $8.00 per packet PLUS $7.00 shipping PER PACKET (if you order another variety from your first packet.) After 3 weeks in the freezer and almost 6 weeks planted with a humidity dome and carefully monitored temperature and moisture, not 1 seed has germinated. I have grown all of my own plants from seed for years, and I am an experienced gardener, so I'm doubting it is user error to have 0% germination. These seeds were the ones I was most excited about this year too. So disappointed.

    • Followed instructions for all three varieties of strawberry seed including three weeks in the freezer. A month after planting in dome starter tray indoors with light and still no germination. Not worth it.
