Strawberry Plug Plant Collection (12 plants - 6 each of Sweet Colossus (early) & Finesse (perpetual))
A collection of two delicious modern strawberry varieties that are both heavy cropping and sweet.
Sweet Colossus (early) - With an impressive average berry weight of 43g each, Colossus certainly is a giant among strawberries, producing enormous conical shaped fruits which are wonderfully sweet and juicy. A fast growing variety, it is easy to maintain and very heavy cropping.
Finesse (perpetual) -Bred in the U.K. this outstanding perpetual variety combines heavy yields with great fruit quality, excellent flavour and good disease resistance, especially in respect to Verticillium Wilt and Crown Rot. ‘Finesse’ produces bright red, medium to large heart-shaped berries which are both sweet and juicy. Plants are vigorous, producing very few energy-sapping runners, resulting in heavy crops of up to 1.2kg (2.6lb) per plant.
Please note that that this collection is supplied as a pack of 12 well rooted plug plants and consists of 6 each of 'Sweet Colossus' and 'Finesse'. Plants should provide you with a maiden crop this summer.
Available for despatch from late March until May 2017.

Following extensive trials on strawberry plants, we now recommend the use of rootgrow™ at the time of planting to encourage strong root growth and aid establishment. Simply sprinkle 1tsp (15ml) of rootgrow™ into the bottom of each planting hole then plant the strawberry plants so that their roots are in direct contact with the granules. Backfill as normal.
We have three different sized packs of rootgrow™ available each will treat the following number of strawberry plants:
60g pack - 12 strawberry plants
150g pack – 30 strawberry plants
360g pack – 72 strawberry plants
