Strawberry (Fragaria ananassa)

I thought this plant was hard to grow. I could not be more wrong :).
Well sort of…… easy to grow but very tempting to humans, birds and insects alike.

Wikipeida writes: ‘The first garden strawberry was grown in Brittany, France during the late 18th century.[3] Prior to this, wild strawberries and cultivated selections from wild strawberry species were the common source of the fruit.’
