Bred in the U.K.  RHS Perfect for Pollinators


Season: Perpetual (mid July - Oct).


Available for delivery: mid October - late November (fresh dug plants), March - late June (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 mid October to late November and will crop the following season. Coldstored strawberry plants are available from March to late June. These will crop 60-90 days after planting. Please note, some varieties (where stated in the product description) are only available as coldstored plants.
