Wild strawberries question
Hello all, first post here.
A few years back, I was hanging out in a friend's garden and they had a patch of these tiny strawberries. They were fantastic in a jug of Pimms
I learnt that these were wild strawberries and I wanted to collect some of the seeds to grow my own, however I was visiting from Australia at that time so bringing back any plant material is a big no-no.
I now live in the UK, and I have been trying to find these same plants since. All the wild strawberry seeds I purchased gave me a more elongated looking fruit - nice, but not the ones I fell in love with!
I was wondering if they are a different variety? I would love to grow the ones in the first picture. I purchased some plants of Waitrose Garden that had that picture in its description, but alas, it arrived today and it's also the elongated form.
Does anyone know where I can find the variety in the first picture?
