1. White Alpine Strawberries
They’re sweeter than regular strawberries, with a hint of pineapple. “Closely related to wild or woodland strawberries, the alpines are considered a gourmet strawberry. Producing throughout the summer, alpines are easy to grow, either in beds or containers. They are hardy to U.S. Department of Agriculture zones 3a through 8b.” Buy them here.

“We have had great success with the following potting medium for strelitzias: 2 parts loam, 2 parts sand, 3 parts 12 cm bark, 3 parts compost and 1/2 part bone meal, and 1 part Bounce back® or 1 part 3.1.5 fertiliser.” The instructions are complicated, so grow if you dare. Get the seeds here.
