Our 'All Season Strawberry Collection' will provide you with delicious strawberries all summer long and is ideal if you only want to grow a small number of plants, have limited space, or would simply like to sample a range of strawberry varieties before choosing which ones to grow.  It consists of early, mid, and late summer strawberries along with a perpetual variety, which together will produce fruit from mid-June through until October.  Plants should provide you with a maiden crop this summer.

This collection is supplied as a pack of 12 well rooted plug plants and consists of 2 each of the following 6 varieties-

Sweet Colossus (early) - With an impressive average berry weight of 43g each, Sweet 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. 

Honeoye (early)Bears heavy crops of large, good flavoured, bright red berries, that are also firm making them excellent for freezing as well as for eating fresh.  RHS Award of Garden Merit

Cambridge Favourite (mid)This wonderful old variety was bred in the U.K. and is still deservedly popular, as it can be relied upon to crop well under a wide range of conditions, producing delicious, sweet berries that can be left to hang on the plants for a long period without getting over-ripe or going rotten. RHS Award of Garden Merit.

Hapil (mid)An excellent flavoured variety that provides heavy yields of large, firm, bright red fruits, cropping well on light soils and under dry conditions. RHS Award of Garden Merit.

Symphony (late)Bred in Scotland, Symphony produces good yields of very firm, juicy, medium-large sized berries which have a bright-red glossy appearance and a very good flavour.  RHS Award of Garden Merit.

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. 

Available for despatch from late March until May 2019.

Price includes *p&p to mainland U.K.

rootgrowTM

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
