Pick pounds of deliciously sweet and juicy strawberries from your own garden with this collection of three top quality proven varieties.

Plants are offered as bare root 'runners' which are delivered in a dormant state having been held in cold storage. They are fully hardy and ready to be planted out straight away. Grow in the garden or in large containers - a 12in pot will hold around three runners. Full instructions will be sent with your order.
Collection contains 10 each of the following varieties:
Honeoye. Early Variety. Starts cropping in late May or early June and crops for 3-4 weeks. Gives a good crop of orange red soft juicy berries with a wonderful taste.
Florence. Late midseason variety. Following Honeoye, Florence will be ready to pick in late June and crops for several weeks. Expect a bountiful crop of dark red firm beriies with an outstanding sweet strawberry taste. Easy to grow too with excellent resistance to disease.
Calypso. Everbearing variety. Crops on a little and often basis from the middle of July so is the perfect follow on from Florence. Although lacking the flush of fruit of the other two Calypso will produce sweet juicy strawberries over many weeks from July right through to autumn. A perfect variety for containers too.
