A proven favourite that has been justifiably popular for many years. Its fruits are very large, bright glossy and full of flovour. The flowers appear late so are not affected by the last of the spring frosts and the fruit will be ready to pick from June to July. This is a high yielding strawberry that performs well in dry summers.

  • Garden care: Prepare the ground well before planting. Clear all the weeds and apply a generous amount of well-rotted manure. When the strawberries are starting to form put a thick layer of straw or use strawberry mats under the plants to stop the fruit touching the soil. Sheets of black plastic mulch can also be used and it will also help retain soil moisture, reduce weeds and encourage early cropping. Strawberries can also be planted in tubs, containers and hanging baskets.
