Description

Strawberries are easy to grow in a variety of situations, and home-grown always seem to have the best flavour. These will fruit this year, and for many years after that.

This collection contains 5 bare roots each of:
  • Strawberry 'Cambridge Favourite' – a very reliable mid-season strawberry with lovely flavour. The best strawberry for jams. It is a reliable cropper on all types of soil.
  • Strawberry 'Honeoye' – a very early variety with excellent flavour, sweet with a sharp edge. It is heavy cropping, with excellent disease resistance.
  • Strawberry 'Florence' – a delicious strawberry with dark-red berries and good disease resistance. Described as 'the Bordeaux of strawberries with a deep, rounded bouquet'.

Care Tips

Water regularly and weed. Protect from slugs and snails by spreading straw around each plant, and cover with netting to protect from birds. You can bring forward the cropping season by growing them in a greenhouse.
