I have a few Alpine strawberry plants from a long-ago order from White Flower Farm and have had white strawberries that I planted from seeds years ago. They were wonderfully tasty and reminded me of the native wild strawberries I used to pick as a kid. With retirement in sight, and not much yield from the unfortunately-neglected old plants, I was delighted to find this supplier. The online information is very extensive and practical, and the seeds arrived promptly and well-packaged. I ordered both red and white varieties as well as lingonberry and serviceberry seeds. Some of them will be going into flats right away, so I should be able to report on how they do.

You'll find separate websites now for strawberry plants and strawberry seeds, but it's easy to navigate between and within the sites. I had a friendly, informative exchange with Mike after my DG article on alpine strawberries was published. I've grown a couple of varieties here and have been looking forward to trying some new ones from him; this year I finally got around to ordering. Wow. I placed a late night order, my seeds were shipped the next day and arrived the day after that.

The Yellow Wonders are still doing great and I have upgraded them to their own individual pots. The Reine des Vallees had an unfortunate mishap- the seed tray got knocked over and they'd dried up by the time I got home. Thankfully I had started a second batch in my office window at work and have a few nice seedlings coming along. The Scarlet Intensity seeds really took off after a while and are continuing to germinate randomly in the original tray I used because I keep watering it out of curiosity. If I can get these through the winter, it is going to be an exciting year for flavor in the garden. I am looking forward to it.

I ordered several different varieties of strawberry seed. They were shipped quite fast and now, after a few weeks, I have excellent germination.

I called and spoke to Mike, I was curious to which variety of Strawberry Seeds I should buy since there was a lot. He was very helpful and gave me a few recommendations. Not often do you find honest people who are willing to help you find the right product, most of the time companies will tell you whatever they want just so you can buy their stuff.. I'll be placing an order soon.

Excellent germination within 7 days of all the many varieties I ordered (not to mention, my order arrived only 2-3 days after I placed it). I used small "snack" type zip plastic bags, dampened paper towels, and a cool windowsill. Now to move them into growing medium! (I couldn't see they had germinated without using a magnifying class, btw.)

Quick delivery of some unique and well-priced seeds. If the seeds work out, I will be ordering more.

I purchased three varieties of alpine strawberry seeds (Alexandria, Mignonette, and White Soul) and 60-cell seed-starting tray (pre-filled with fertilizer enriched media) from the Strawberry Seed Store earlier this year and so far I give this company a 5/5 rating for Selection, Quality, Information Content, and Customer Service.

I recently received my third order from this wonderful company. My first order, for a dozen 'Mara des Bois' strawberry plants, arrived promptly and the plants were well-packaged, healthy and had massive root systems. Price was very reasonable and the 'Mara des Bois' are settling in nicely to their new home with lush new foliage.

I purchased alpine seeds from him and have had a pretty good germination rate though I haven't figured out if it's meeting what is stated on the packets.

I ordered seeds about 3 weeks ago, have received the seeds and already have germination. There was no pre-treatment needed, and I think my germination rate will be higher than that stated on the packet.

I ordered alpine and musk strawberries in April 09 after finding this seller via the Cornell University site. The owner sent me very well packed plants. The musk strawberries in particular were huge & had massive root systems, and are very happily blooming away in my garden now. The alpine strawberries are holding their own (no blooms yet). The owner was kind enough to knock $20 off my total because he was able to get everything in one box. Nice!

I ordered 'The Italians" alpine strawberry seed collection in January as well as "3 Musks" - a selection of 3 types of musk strawberries in January. Mike was kind enough to hold off on shipping the musk strawberry plants until April 15. When they arrived, the plants were large and vigorous - some had more than one plant in a pot. They are already blooming like mad in my garden and I hope to enjoy my first musk strawberries soon. I started the seeds the same day I received them and had nearly 100% germination within 7 days.
