Mid season
Finest flavour
Heavy cropping

Raised and introduced by Chris Bowers & Sons. Norfolk Nectar is the first release from our own breeding programme tailored for you the home gardener, with flavour top amongst its priorities. Norfolk Nectar is a cross between our two most flavoursome strawberries, Chapelaine (our top seller of the last 10 years), and the grand old favourite Royal Sovereign. Norfolk Nectar has inherited Chapelaines enviable growth characteristics, forming a compact, neat, well foliated plant with noticeably large blossoms which emerge over a long period. This means that during late frost seasons, Norfolk Nectar will still produce a crop where others may fail completely. With the further influence of Royal Sovereign, the grand old dame of english strawberries in its parentage, Norfolk Nectars flavour has been raised to rapturous levels. An eating sensation, the tender, succulent, juicy and seductively sweet berries satisfy the most demanding taste buds and provide a tempting tea time treat for up to 6 weeks during the summer. The berries are an attractive heart shape and a bright, clean orange scarlet colour. Norfolk Nectar was bred with flavour in mind but it should be noted it has a very good health record as well and has consistantly outyielded Cambridge Favourite in our trials and is suited to standard outdoor cultivation, in pots, under glass and cloches. Our 30 years fruit plant experience has gone into this, the first 'fruits' of our breeding programme. Specifically with home gardeners in mind. We are proud to introduce Norfolk Nectar, a variety of truly outstanding flavour, quality and performance. P.B.R. Applied for Exclusive to Chris Bowers & Sons.

Sending a tree through the post isn't easy, so our parcels are expertly packed to keep your goods in the best condition. There is no surcharge on the delivery of larger parcels/orders.

Tree size as supplied varies but is usually between 3.5' - 4.5' on despatch. A few varieties might be slightly smaller, some a little bigger, of course it does vary but this is a good average. WE SUPPLY YOUNG TREES - and are proud to do so. Although we are sometimes requested to supply older/bigger trees, the percieved advantages are outwighed by disadvantages! Older trees take longer to establish and will fruit no more quickly. The young trees we send out grow away and establish so quickly and healthily & often yield within 1 season of planting. Our customers even report fruits the first year of planting! All professional fruit growers prefer to plant young trees rather than older.

Our soft fruit bushes are usually 2 years old.
Everything is stringently graded, grown on the nursery and well packed!

  • No need to be in - You can request your parcel to be left in a safe place, or stipulate an alternative delivery address, at the checkout.
  • Free 16 page booklet with every order dealing with all aspects of fruit growing.

Gold Standard Health & Quality

Chris Bowers' Gold StandardWe have in place very rigorous standards for the health, providence and uniformity of all our fruiting plants & trees. Our Nursery and the stock we grow is inspected and passported for health regularly by DEFRA experts [formerly the Ministry of Agriculture] and we have in place our own stringent controls and inspection programmes to ensure our fruiting bushes and trees are the best, most disease free stocks available and truly beyond compare.

We always propagate from certified stock where this exists and have the highest standards regarding providence and grading. If only the very best will do - as it should - then you can rely on a Chris Bowers fruiting plant to give the most exemplary results available. We firmly believe that only the very healthiest stock can and does produce vastly superior results - and it shows.

Our Guarantee

We are proud of each & every plant & tree we despatch from our Nursery. If it fails to thrive or live up to your expectations we will replace or refund it. This is in addition to your statutory rights. We may rarely ask for details of care and cultivation given to it, or arrange for a return of the item for inspection, to assist in our own programme of improvement.
