How to Grow an Alpine Strawberry These delicate looking plants are tougher than they look and can bear fruit with as little sun as four hours a day. Unfussy, they bear the best testing fruit in soil that is rich in organic matter and that is well-draining. Alpine strawberries have shallow roots that can be easily damaged through cultivation or by the hot summer sun, so it is best to mulch around them with compost, straw, or pine needles. Add fresh mulch in the spring to continually enrich the soil, retain moisture, discourage weeds, and keep the soil cool. Plants can be propagated from seed or via crown division. If growing alpine strawberries from seed, sow seed in a flat filled with a well-draining medium. Very lightly cover the seeds with soil and then set the flat in a pan of water. Seeds will take a few weeks to germinate and may not do so all at once, so be patient. After a month or so of growth, the seedlings should be transplanted into individual pots and slowly hardened off outside. Transplant them into the garden after all chance of frost has passed for your area. Seedlings planted in the spring will bear that summer. In successive growing years, the plants will begin to fruit in the spring.
