The primary flower opens first and usually produces the largest berry.

Plating Season: Planting Organic Strawberries in the spring as well as fall has its individual benefits. By planting in the spring, you are taking advantage of the warmer weather that will help the plants grow fast and strong, but you may have to wait a year for the plants to bear fruit. Planting Organic Strawberries in the autumn will take advantage of the colder months to allow the seeds to start growing naturally when the weather is cool enough got them to naturally start, more than likely beating you to the punch by a few weeks. (Remember, Strawberries are incredibly robust and a few additional touches of cold weather, even a freeze or two will not harm them.)
Home Uses: Strawberries may be grown as a wild crop or tended garden crop. Their uses are limited only by the grower's ability or imagination. May be grown for fresh crop, fruits, harvesting leaves and chutes for herbal teas, poultices, and other homeopathic remedies. Strawberries are a wonderful fruit to preserve, can, jam, and add to other preserved fruits.
Germination: Sow seeds on the surface of soil or planting medium. Lightly cover with loose soil, water with spray bottle. (So not water with can or hose) Keep in sunny location, or sow directly in permanent location, if providing protection from predators, and ample water until established.
Maintenance: Low, weeding, and harvesting
Pests/Diseases: Wilt, Spot & Rot - if present in growing area
Cultural Requirements: Loamy, well-draining soils are best. However, strawberry plants will grow in a variety of soils and other environmental conditions. May be grown in native, amended, or depleted soils, depending on desired use
USDA Zones: Native in 3b to 9a, but may be grown in all locations in the USA, Canada, and Europe.

Sun: Full for best results, dappled or filtered shade, once established
Water: Water when first germinating, lightly, with proper amount of water. Do not over water. Very adaptable once established, and requires little if any water once mature
Texture: Fine to medium
Wildlife/Landscape Value: Strawberries are a common source of food for many wild animals, birds, and are harvested by people for the fruit, and occasionally, the foliage

Purchased monkey puzzle tree seeds. They arrived on time and in acceptable packaging, but the seeds are way too tiny. This type of tree produces large seeds, usually 1.5 to 2 inches in length. The seeds I received where not even 1/16 of an inch.
Emailed seller twice regarding my surprise and concern and have not received a response.
My recommendation: Find another seller.
