its kinda hard to say its worth it or not. sometimes they might germinate and sometimes they dont. IIRC , srikanth once got some seeds (seedless cucumber) and it turned out all of the seeds that germinated had only male flowers. it could be that one case. but we never know...
yes , i have grown strawberry from seeds. takes a while to flower and fruit. also not sure if it will taste the same as the parent plant.
lettuce seeds have to be fresh to get good gemination rates. also dont get iceberg. they need cold weather you are better off with loose leaf lettuces.
Thanks for the quick reply GG ,
thats a intresting point to note abt seeds . I am going to attempt a try with strawberries for the first time . Wld be happy to get some inputs from u like where to place it ...watering etc .
BTW , i am waiting for long for the online store version of gardenguru . when can i expect things to take shape ?
do try strawberries its fun to do and do remember post the process and the results. seeds germinate in about 10 days time. you can take the seeds from regular strawberries you find in the market. Most of the plants are hybrid so the seeds may not be true to its type but it will germinate. have fun.
regarding the online store, yes things are happening behind the scenes. I am trying to streamline the store (both online and the shop).it is taking more time than i thought. I will try to get it out at the earliest possible time.
Now that you've talked about growing Strawberries from seeds procured by street side strawberries, how can we process the seeds. I am sure it won't be as simple as saving some seeds from the fruit and then chucking them in the soil..... is it?
Or do we have to preserve them like you explained for tomatoes?
