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 6 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'.

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.
