Hi - I sowed alpine strawberries at the start of January in a half tray and they have well-formed true leaves now. I'm about to pot them on but space indoors will be an issue. I wonder would they be hardy enough to go into the unheated polytunnel now? Thanks for any advice

btw - I don't want to force them, I just want to protect them for a while before they go outside in the ground.

yes the seedling strawberry plants will do quite well in a cool glasshouse and plan t them out to their permanent quarters in April.

Thanks very much Michael, I was hoping that would be the case, window sills are in short supply!
