I also grow Sequoia strawberries along with Seascape and Albion.
All have done well for me. I grow mine in containers. Strawberries
are 'short lived' perennials. That means the original plant may live
about 3 to 4 years. After the plants finish their major berry
production cycle each year, they will begin to produce long runners
with little plants on them. Place a soil filled container under each
baby strawberry plant and keep it pressed in the soil. Keep the soil
moist. They will root and grow. After all the small plants are
rooted, sever the runner from the parent plant and cut the runner
between the rooted plants. Grow them on through summer. They will
bear fruit in fall or spring. From one Seascape plant I got 14 new
plants that provided a great crop of fruit.
