Alpine Strawberries?

Hello!

I decided I'd like to try Alpine Strawberries on my balcony as it gets lots of sun and they seem pretty (plus I already have mini tomato plants, it would be cute to have a mini theme).
It turns out the local garden centre (Fiesta Farms) doesn't have them, booo! Has anyone seen the plants for sale in one of the downtown-ish garden centres? I cycle so any tips would save me a fruit-less ride.

Thanks!

Hi, I just happened to have bought some this weekend at Humber Nurseries on Hwy 27 for $2.99 a pot! Previously i could only find them at Richters Herbs and that was the seeds. With shipping, they were going to cost around $10.
Can't wait to give them a try!
cheers

Thanks Yvonne!

I was just figuring out how to get there (or who to hit up for a drive) when my collegue told me she had found some at the Karma Co-op in the Annex! It's a small organic food co-op, and aparently they have lots, You and I were ahead of the trend :) Very excited, let's hope we get lots of cute berries :)
