More Details

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 strawberry collection contains 6 bare roots each of:

  • Strawberry 'Honeoye' – a very early variety with excellent flavour, sweet with a sharp edge. It is heavy cropping, with excellent disease resistance.
  • 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 'Florence' – a delicious strawberry with dark-red berries and good disease resistance. Described as 'the Bordeaux of strawberries with a deep, rounded bouquet'.
