Wild Strawberry Seeds

Wild Strawberry Jam
One of the easiest ways to enjoy the flavor of wild strawberries is in a jam. The Wild Strawberry Jam made by Confiture a l'ancienne contains wild strawberries and pure cane sugar.

Egglings are the ultimate in simple gardening. Each egg shaped flower pot is already filled with peat and seeds. To grow the seeds, the recipient simply cracks the top of the egg and waters the contents. The Wild Strawberry Eggling will grow a wild strawberry plant for up to five months in the provided container before it must be replanted into a bigger area. You can find these unique Eggling gifts at GettingPersonal.co.uk.
