Hi all, n00b here with a question. I've never done much gardening (aside from "helping" my mom when I was little), but I recently discovered that we have wild strawberries growing in our backyard. I absolutely adore wild strawberries, but I tried one of these, and it was tragically tasteless.
I'm hoping, though, if I were to try to cultivate the strawberries, they would grow better and we would be able to eat them, because the idea of having strawberries in our own backyard and not eating them makes me very sad.
So, as a very unexperienced gardener, I have several questions. First, is this idea plausible? How would I go about it? Is it too late to do anything this year? Are my dreams of fresh wild strawberries every day destined to be shattered?
I live in a townhouse, so we have a pretty small back yard, but it does get plenty of sunlight and there's enough space for a small garden. Here are a few pictures of the strawberries, if anyone knows what variety they are:
Thanks for your help!
