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 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'.

Sowing, Seeds, Planting Prepare your ground by digging in plenty of well-rotted manure or garden compost and add a general purpose fertiliser. Measure out planting holes 35cm (14in) apart. Space rows 75cm (30in) apart. Dig out a hole large enough to accommodate the roots. Trim the roots lightly to 10cm (4in) if necessary, then spread them out in the hole. Ensure that the base of the crown rests lightly on the surface before firming in gently. Planting at the correct depth is important: if the crown is planted too deeply it will rot; if it is planted too shallowly the plants will dry out and die. Water the plants in well. If planting in the autumn or early spring, remove the first flush of flowers of perpetual strawberries.
Care Tips You can bring forward the cropping season by growing them in a greenhouse. Water regularly and weed. Protect from slugs and snails by spreading straw around each plant, and cover with netting to protect from birds. Find more tips on how to grow strawberries.

The purchase was disappointing. Most of one variety did not survive.. Customer service were very good at giving me money back but it did mean a season without the strawberries.

Good strong bareroot plants. Slow to fruit and sparsely fruited this season but growing on strongly for next.

The collection consisted of 15 plants, of which none of the Honeoye survived for more than a week, despite being planted up as directed. The customer team were really helpful and replaced them but even these did not have a very good survival percentage. Don't want to sound too upset as I order lots from SR and the vast majority of stock is excellent.
