It is uncomplicated and robust. The wild strawberry is perennial and wintergreen. Even in the rather dreary winter season, it enriches the garden with its green leaves and attracts all eyes.
Woodberries are delicate and decorative
The leaves of the strawberry plant are triangular. They are dark green and form a great background for the white flowers and red fruits. The individual leaves are strongly serrated, which gives the foliage an interesting appearance. The strawberry plants grow flat, spreading and carpet-like. They reach a maximum height of 15 to 20 centimetres. The white flowers are cup-shaped and form continuously from May to September. This gives rise to the lovely red berries.
The ideal location for the wild strawberry
Strawberries can be planted all year round. If you buy wild strawberries, you have many options for incorporating them into the garden. When planting, however, make sure that the soil is humus-rich and well-drained. The soil can dry out from time to time, and especially in summer you should always provide the plant with sufficient water. The ideal location for the strawberry is sunny to semi-shady. The sunnier the strawberry plants are, the sourer the berries will be.

In this case, no more than twelve plants should be planted per square metre. The wild strawberry is a feast for the eyes at any stage. This makes it extremely valuable for garden lovers.
