Strawberries that the birds won't eat!

This year we have almost a whole bed of alpine strawberries.
These have lusher, greener leaves and a fruit that ripens white. They are smaller than most strawberries but just as delicious. The main benefit is that they do not attract birds, insects and even dogs that all love to guzzle on the red ones.

Definitely worth a try if you have a problem with garden pests. I have had a few of these plant for a while but this year they have really taken over so they obviously must propagate well.
