Strawberry spinach

This is a rather funky little plant. You can eat its leaves, the flowers and the berries.
The berries taste a bit like hazelnut, in my opinion.
 It's just a great plant to have in the garden. Very easy to grow, too.

I tried to grow it, but I failed. I don't know what I did wrong, but none of the seedlings came out. Maybe seeds were old, I don't know. Great blog, I will be visiting you. Greetings from Poland :)

Dewberry, it's quite possible that the seeds were old. They self-seed readily in the garden, if you let them.
Thank you for visiting! Lovely to see you. :)

Where did you get the seed from? They look very unusually.
Would like to try and as you are in Adelaide and I'm in Perth...may have a chance with them.
