The Q&A Archives: Strawberries

Question: Hello,
I started an entire flat of strawberry seeds, of the flat (200 seeds)only 10 took. they are growing very slowly and I do mean slowly, example would be that it has been 4 weeks, ad all i have are 2 tiny bigger than a pinhead. Am i doing something wrong?

Answer: It sounds as though your new little plants are struggling; from lack of sufficient light, too little warmth or not enough nutrients. Place them where they will be warm and receive bright light and feed every 2-3 weeks with a half-strength dilution of liquid fertilizer. Hope they perk up soon!
