Description

Quick-cropping Perpetual strawberry, easy to grow from seed and fast to reach fruit harvesting stage in the same season as sowing.

We use this in edible window boxes and containers - old water troughs from the farm, mixed with other edible and ornamental container plants, such as Dwarf Bean ‘Hestia’ and Tomato ‘Microcherry’.

Please note, illustrated packets are being introduced gradually over the coming months, availability may vary.

Care Tips

Strawberries require regular watering throughout the growing season, and ripening fruits should be netted against birds. Apply a liquid potash feed, such as a tomato feed, every 7 to 14 days. In early spring apply a general fertiliser.
