The project plant for the jubilee year Fragaria vesca var. semperflorens (known as alpine strawberry or woodland strawberry). All participants received two plant, which we are now growing together. One plant will grow yellow and other red fruits. During the project we’ll grow plants, learn about the plants, collect data and compare results. During the project groups will create a project blog, participate in quizzes and competitions. In the end the best strawberry grower group will be find out.
