This page gives instructions on how to buy strawberry seeds from David's Garden Seeds. Strawberry seeds are very tiny. We recommend that they be started inside. Never direct sow. They are hard to get started.
Alexandria Strawberries are alpine strawberries from seed. Day-neutral. These decorative little plants produce delicious, aromatic red strawberries, about twice the size of wild berries but much smaller than the standard type. Perennials, Alpine strawberries stay compact and produce few runners, making them suitable for rock gardens, path edgings, pots, and window boxes. They begin producing the second spring, sometimes the first fall. Grows best in zones 5-8. Blooms in 110-120 days

Strawberry Tarpan 25 Hybrid Seeds
The Alexandria is the strawberry we grew. It took me about three tries to finally get some good looking plants. So don't be surprised if you have to try several times to get them to come out right.
This variety of strawberry gives delicious, small to medium-sized, deep red berries the first year from midsummer until frost. They are perfect for growing in containers and hanging baskets which means if you don't have a large growing space, you can still have strawberries in your garden.
If you live in the city and you have a small balcony, hang a few pots up or use a rectangular window planter and grow some strawberries! The hanging plants look pretty and will provide fruit as well. In cold weather, you can easily bring the plants in and continue to grow them in your kitchen or on a table by a sunny window.
recommend that you start these indoors using grow lights about 12 weeks
before planing transplanting. Put your germination mix into 4 inch
black pots. Sow about 6 seeds to a pot about 1/4 inch deep. Put the
pots in leak proof trays. Bottom water the plants until they are about
three inches tall. Keep the soil temperature between 60°F and 75°F.
Cover or use a heat mat to help maintain this temperature. But do not
use both as this will create too much moisture or heat.
At three inches tall, thin out so that you have three plants to a pot.
When the plants are about six inches tall and danger of frost is over, get you plants ready to plant outside by using a hardening off technique of some sort.
Once they are hardening off, your plants should be ready to plant outdoors. Plant where they will get six hours of morning sun.
These strawberries prefer a raised strawberry bed. I have built several in my backyard. I made tiered beds, sort of like pyramids to make it easy to pick the fruit on each layer. A raised bed allows the soil to drain properly so the plants do not get over-watered and subsequently rot in the roots.
Of course you can always buy plants that are grown already, but the best are the one you grow yourself.
