Thanks for this Ordered

Thanks...ordered

nice one cheers

A traditional, old variety, not so widely available these days - you are unlikely to ever see fruit offered for sale - but we are keen to keep it in our range because so many of our customers who 'are in the know' keep asking for it.
Maybe not such a vigorous grower as some of the more modern varieties, but more than makes up for this by producing a good crop of berries which have the most superb 'old fashioned' flavour

Thanks. ordered.

can these be grown in pots?

Thanks. Ordered with the Orange Wonder as well.

No but he does sell exceedingly good rakes.

Ordered, good find. For others who want the free seed packs with their order search for 'free delivery'

Lovely jubbly.

nice find will worth it.

no mention of size?

Thanks, have ordered some ..

but will remove any flowers this year .. this will give bumper crops in the future

Nice find - never grown strawberries before but will give it a go at this price. Heat added!

Got these last year... prepare to be underwealmed when they arrive. They will come bare rooted so will look crap at first... stick em in some soil with a good water though and they'll soon come good.

Won't crop very well at all this year but give them over next winter and should come up trumps like mine are starting to now....

Best thing about them is mins survived all winter oustside with no protection and were even in pots not the ground. They will send off LOADS of runners too... stake them down and you'll double or triple the number of plants by next year.

thank you.... I kept checking whether T&M will have them on offer but they don't so - good find

But a strawberry plant is a weed. Just a very pretty one with nice leaves, a nice flower and some lovely fruit. But let's not forget it's a weed that spreads like wild fire. Why not just get a cutting from somone?

Anyone know how likely these are to thrive in a greenhouse in the NE of Scotland? I know that loads of berries are grown on an industrial scale round here, but are these likely to survive without that level of expertise/pesticides etc?

Fantastic, thanks

one fruit for the garden sorted, great buy ordered

Thanks

Yes they can...all of my strawberry plants are in pots.

Don't forget to plant the runners to produce more strawberry plants

Heat added Cheers!

Whats a runner?

Ordered some - thanks

I remember as a kid, when we went on summer holidays I used to get so excited on the way home because I could see if any of the strawberries in the back garden had ripened (tho most usually they'd been eaten by slugs or been waterlogged!). So I'm going to order some of these for the kids.

Are those upright pots with all the holes in the sides any good? Don't want to plant them in the ground as the cats use that as a loo!

Just plant them in horse sh*t instead

Brilliant. Voted "HOT" and ordered. Thanks.

Strawberries are one of the best homegrown crops along with carrots (best stir fried), tomatoes, beetroot, broccoli, kale and potatoes.
