    There are some strawberry seeds in the Virtual Seed Parcel (VSP) that you can swap your seeds for. Read about it at http://www.growfruitandveg.co.uk/gra...nce_68032.html and PM me if you want to swap.

    Wouldn't you be better with runners or young plants?

    Strawberry plants produce runners with new baby plants on them. https://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=e...tm%3B417%3B251

    I find this is the best way to propagate them - quicker than seed, and they come true to the parent plant. Do you have anyone near you with strawberry plants?
