Strawberry Plants 'Symphony' (12 plants)

Strawberry Plants 'Symphony' (12 plants) Code: STR008

£15.50 inc. p&p 15.5000 In Stock New

Fragaria x ananassa 'Symphony'

This late summer strawberry was bred in Scotland and seems to excel in damper conditions, doing exceptionally well in the north and west. The medium-large bright red berries have a very good old fashioned strawberry flavour. The plants appear to be vine weevil resistant and have good mildew resistance when grown outside.

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


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


Available for delivery: October & 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 in October and 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.
