Strawberry, Old North Sea (3 plants) Ships prompt
This is a cold-hardy, old variety from Denmark; it was found growing in an ancient viking village site. Plants are low-growing, which makes them harder to spot by birds and also protects the delicate fruit from frost. These berries are a medium-sized June bearer with a great flavor; fruit sets early. Very rare and hard to find. Please make sure you are ready for your order in your zone as these young, tender plants generally have no resistance to cold.
Plant Care Instrustions:
Plants cannot tolerate a hard freeze; however, northern growers can grow them in hanging baskets and bring them indoors in the winter or grow them outdoors simply for their gorgeous flowers (but no fruit). Plant outdoors after chance of frost has passed. Choose a sunny site with well-drained soil. Trellis or stake plants to keep them from taking over the garden, as they will otherwise grow into a tangled mess! Prune vines to create airflow and to promote fruiting. WARNING: PLANTS ARE VERY YOUNG AND TENDER. DO NOT PUT THEM OUTSIDE UNTIL ALL DANGER OF FROST HAS PASSED.
