Forget about buying expensive seedlings and young plants to fill those hanging baskets, flowerpots, and windowboxes. The absolute showiest is Rainbow Treasure, and you can grow it for pennies a plant! It regales you with spring blooms of white, pink, and rosy-red (all 3 colors at once, on every plant!), followed by big, red, juicy-sweet berries in summer. And the large dark green leaves, neatly veined for a pleated look, remain attractive from early spring until frost!
And Rainbow Treasure needs no coddling or fancy treatment to reach its full potential. Sow the seeds indoors about 2 months before the last scheduled spring frost date, covering them with soil-starting medium or dropping them into the hole of the Bio Sponge. If using seed flats, cover the whole flat with a piece of paper to keep out light; in the Bio Dome, the absence of grow lights is enough. The seeds should germinate in 21 to 28 days at 68 to 75 degrees F.
You will love this beautiful, delicious strawberry, and we predict it will soon be the talking point of your garden or patio! Do order soon, before the seed sells out! Pkt is 15 seeds.
