This plant is semi-evergreen, so it can lose some of its leaves in winter. In colder regions or more exposed gardens, it may lose them all, but then fresh new foliage appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: any soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Bumper crops of large fruits that have a deliciously sweet taste and firm flesh, can be harvested from late june on this recently introduced strawberry. It is said to have a much lower incidence of producing misshapen fruits than many other types.

  • Garden care:
    Plants purchased as runners are sent out as dormant bare root plants and should be planted out within a couple of days of arrival. Soak the plants in tepid water for 20 minutes to rehydrate their roots while you dig holes twice the width of the root system. Place the strawberries with the crown level with the crown level with the soil and spread the roots before filling in the hole, incorporating plenty of organic matter.

    Plants purchased in pots, and as runners, can be spaced at 45cm (18in) apart, leaving 75cm (30in) between rows. Water thoroughly after planting and mulch around the base, avoiding the crown - they will put on new growth in spring. During warm weather and fruit growth, ensure plants are well-watered. Prevent fruit contact with soil by using a thick layer of straw, or re-usable strawberry collar around each plant. Strawberries can also be planted in tubs, containers and hanging baskets.
