Strawberries do not bear true to seed. If you plant seeds you will have new strawberry varieties just like your children are different from you.
Strawberry varieties are propagated by runners and daughter plants from the original plant.

Thank you for your response. Do you have a recommendation of where to buy hardy plants? Preferably on line and what month would be good.

How many plants do you want to buy? We generally plant strawberries in the spring. Order now and they will ship to you when it is time to plant.
Krohne's and Daisy Farms are Michigan farms that grow strawberry plants.
Nourse is a large commercial berry nursery
Indiana Berry sells plants for commercial growers and homeowners.
Gurney's and Burpees are large firms that specialize to home owner sales
