Hello, I might be daft, but are you saying to plant strawberry seeds in the coldest months of the year here? If so, then perhaps that is why the last lot did not germinate when planted in Autumn. Thank you.

Katherine, strawberry seed needs to be stratified i.e. place in freezer for 4 weeks remove to room temp for a couple hours and then take the general advise for sowing in this site and you should be fine..........

Hi Katherine, Have you read the information about growing from seed on the 'Strawberries (from seeds)' page ? There are detailed instructions.
