Wild Strawberry (Fragaria vesca)

April through to July is the time to look for the Wild Strawberry flower. It is very similar to the garden Strawberry we all love to eat only much smaller and, inevitably, the fruit is smaller too (shame!)

Common in woods and hedgerows across Dorset it is easily confused with the Barren Strawberry which is very similar but that flowers earlier from February through to May
