Fragaria vesca

Today I was reminded just how much I love wild strawberry plants. I have an area along the side of the Yew hedge that they have taken over. It is a very sunny sport and today it was very warm up there,  so a joy to get down on my hands and knees and have a good look at the sweet little white flowers, knowing I would be eating their fruit on a nice summers day. I still want to move some of them into the back of the fruit cage so they can take over that area, I will have even more fruit to collect in the summer, what joy. It is an area that is not used so they can take it over and stop any weeds.

  1. We have these growing beneath some cotinus bushes where they do very well. When they send runners out into the surrounding gravel I replant them into the main bed. The berries are a bonus – I do like ground cover with benefits.
