For garden planting, plant 15″ apart in the row with 3-4′ between rows. Most varieties can be planted in pots, containers, windowboxes, even hanging baskets as well. They will yield well for 3 years and usually start to decline after that, most professionalls will re plant every 4 years or so.

Strawberries will be sent out now in pots as they establish better than from an Autumn planting. You will then get a full crop next summer.

  • Alice Strawberry Plants


    A new outstanding early strawberry! Bred by HRI East Malling, the home of so many of England’s finest Strawberries. Alice has produced exceptional trial results and has been eagerly anticipated indeed. Cropping a week or more before Elsanta, the very regular conical berries have high percentage of Class 1 fruits and a most attractive shiny bright orange red skin. Everyone comments on the extremely sweet and juicy flavour and the bright attractive skin. Disease resistance is better than with the older earlies. Alice is a new variety sure to please with some very impressive qualities. Early ordering advised.

  • Allstar Strawberry Plants


    Allstar plants are medium to large, vigorous, runner freely, and form a dense matted row. Fruit is mild and sweet in flavor, and can be very large. Fruit is symmetrical and shapely. An introduction from 1981, named apparently for it’s ‘Allstar’ performance. Ripens early June.

  • Aromel Strawberry Plants


    A really superb flavour and crops twice a year. The fruit is medium red, of good size and appearance and the flavour exceptional. It makes a medium to large plant and the fruit is well displayed. Aromel is an English variety raised by Mr R. Cumberland and was extensively tested at the Ministry of Agriculture Experimental Stations where it cropped well both outdoors and under tunnels, Its first crop is second early and heavier than that of other autumn fruiters. The later cropping period is August until the first frosts and to obtain a maximum autumn crop, remove the flowers…

  • Brenda Strawberry Plants


    We have reintroduced this very old favourite by popular request. Suffering surprisingly little from disease considering its age (last popular well over 30 years ago) the very dark green foliage partly hides the moderately sized torpedo shaped dark red juicy berries. As might be expected the flavour is superb. Stock limited.

  • Calypso Strawberry Plants


    A new ever-bearing variety from the institute of Horticulture Research East Malling. The fruits are very attractive and have a lovely flavour. Picking from July until the first frosts, the main picking period is in August and September. The fruits are predominately large and regular in shape with the advantage that the fruits maintain their quality in hot weather. Attractive bright shiny fruits with a lovely texture and flavour to match. Compact growth enables close planting. Good resistance to Verticillium Wilt. Calypso is excellent for dessert and exhibition. Large luscious fruits all summer long.

  • Camarosa Strawberry Plants


     A day neutral variety raised in California which does best in warmer situations and is useful for protected and out of season cropping in the glasshouse, and can also provide worthwhile crops over an extended period outdoors if cloched.

  • Cambridge Favourite Strawberry Plants


    The mid season variety that was once so prevalent and well known throughout the 1970’s and 1980’s that it was often referred to under it’s seedling name of Cambridge 142, Cambridge Favourite was by far the most popular variety of all before gradually becoming superseded. But it remains a garden variety with a certain following and the plant hasn’t lost any of it’s vigour or merits. The characteristic large, floppy, pale leaves remain relatively untroubled by disease and the good crop of pale orange, mostly rounded fruits, ripen mid season. In it’s day the flavour was sometimes unfavourably described, but…

  • Cambridge Vigour Strawberry Plants


    early mid-season, medium to large fruits of very good flavour and appearance. A good variety for a frost pocket because the blossom trusses develop late. In its maiden year this variety is early with exceptional flavour, in the second and third years mid-season with a very good flavour. The plants are large and upright and are also excellent for growing under cover, one of the best for growing in used gro-bags after tomatoes etc. have finished cropping. Specially recommended for flavour in its maiden year, this variety is a very old favourite, susceptible to Mildew.

  • Catskill Strawberry Plants


     Catskill is named after the Mountain in New York; it is a much sought after heirloom variety raised back in 1934.  The large, long and conical deep red berries are very soft which is why it fell from favour commercially but this can be advantage to the home gardener who doers not wish for ‘crunchy’ strawberries. It has a most pleasing flavour picked just before consumption for tea! Season early-mid; a vigorous grower with resistance to Verticillium wilt.  Photo is generic. 

  • Cirano Strawberry Plants


    Pronounced ‘Shirano’ and recommended as a much improved alternative to the popular ‘Mara des Bois’. Still with the same wonderful rich aromatic flavour inherited from the wild woodland Strawberry, but with much better disease resistance, especially Botrytis. The harvest period starts in July and goes on right through to the frosts! The lovely bright attractive colour and the very fragrance of the fruit invites you to sample the perfect flavour. A compact plant with dark green lustrous foliage. A truly excellent introduction. Outstanding for it’s cropping period and flavour. Perfect for dessert and makes a really tasty jam. A season…

  • Earliglow Strawberry Plants


     This variety was raised in America back in 1964 and is aptly named, for the berries have a most beautiful glowing red colour and ripen very early in the season, at about the same time as Honeyoye. The flavour is very sweet and juicy and the berries are suitable for all purposes in addition they freeze very well. Disease resistant qualities include resistance to Verticillium wilt, Leaf spot and partly resistant to mildew. A most attractive and enjoyable variety to grow, very seldom offered. Photo is generic.

  • Elsanta Strawberry Plants


    A mid-season from Holland. Ripening a few days later than Cambridge Favourite, the fruit is medium to large, firm and a bright almost brick-red colour. The flavour of the orange-red flesh is good. Heavy cropping and now being widely planted by commercial market growers. The firmness of the juicy fruits allows them to keep their ‘fresh picked’ look for several days. An excellent variety. Flavour very good, disease resistance not so good. Recommended.

  • Elvira Strawberry Plants


    A recent introduction from Holland that is ideal for growing under cloches or glass. An early variety with large, bright fruits that are firm and juicy. Excellent flavour, a good yield of quality fruit. Health is generally good, but mildew can be a problem in some areas. One of the best varieties for early forcing or growing in pots.

Picking 5 days before Honeyoye and 10 days earlier than Elsanta for 50% harvest: the plants are erect in habit and…

  • Fenella Strawberry Plants


    One of the main things that struck us about Fenella is the wonderful, lush, vigorous but compact dark leafed plant habit. Fenella has excellent disease resistance and is a late summer season variety recommended as a superior replacement to the popular Florence. Fenella is a real season extender with a 3 week or longer crop of large [typically 15gram] berries which are evenly shaped and provide a very attractive appearance at the tea table. Fenella has a juicy, nicely tasting slightly aromatic flavour that will not disappoint. Performs well during wet summers and recommended for all areas, Fenella has a…
