Before we dive in, I recommend getting starter plants instead of growing from seeds because it can take a REALLY long time to get fruit from a seed.
It can take about 2-3 years to germinate. You carry the risk of the plant becoming wild and very small.
Do yourself a favor and get one that has flowers on it already. I highly recommend to start out with Bare Root Strawberry Crowns. The Crown of the strawberry plant is where the plant stem meets the root. This provides the stems and eventually the flowers energy and nutrients. This is key to begin.
YES, it is perfectly okay to do this.
Just be sure to pick a growing medium like clay pebbles so you can rinse the soil off and stick it in the system.
The Bare Root is almost like a shrub, or a tree. When looking to order your plant, read the reviews. See what other clients are saying about it.
