Fragaria x ananassa 'Cambridge Favourite'

Probably the best known of the older varieties, this much loved strawberry is often found on 'pick your own' farms. Many gardeners refuse to grow anything else! Ripening midseason, it is one of the heaviest cropping varieties available and can be relied on to crop well under a wide range of weather conditions. The medium-sized berries are soft, sweet and juicy and have a very good flavour. Resistant to mildew.

Bred in the U.K.  RHS Award of Garden Merit  RHS Perfect for Pollinators


Season: mid Summer (mid June - mid July).


Available for delivery: late October - late November (fresh dug plants), March - early July (coldstored plants).


 

If you have ever grown your own strawberries before you will know that the aroma and flavour is far superior to that of shop bought fruit. What’s more, they take up a minimum amount of room and are easy to grow. All they require is a sunny, sheltered spot. Plants can be spaced 30cm (12in) apart in the open ground. Alternatively they can be grown in growbags (10 plants per growbag), or in hanging baskets or containers.

 

Our hand graded strawberry plants are raised on selected sites in the UK under the Plant Health Propagation Scheme (PHPS) and are guaranteed to be free from pests and diseases.

 

Fresh dug strawberry runners are available from late October to late November and will crop the following season. Coldstored strawberry plants are available from March to early July. These will crop 60-90 days after planting. Please note, some varieties (where stated in the product description) are only available as coldstored plants.
