Strawberry Malling - Centenary Plant x3

  • Catalogue Code 1060-9997
  • Pack Contents: 3 Bare Root Strawberry Plants

With a melt-in the–mouth texture and excellent flavour, this strawberry variety was the first ever to be shortlisted for the RHS Chelsea Flower Show Plant of the year. Now here’s your opportunity to get this Chelsea-contender in your own garden, whether you grow them in pots or straight in the soil.

The delicious fruit is regular in shape for easy-picking which even young children can get involved in. The strawberry fruits are firm in texture protecting it from British weather. Did we mention its visual appeal? So pretty growing in pots.

We recommend you position your 3 small bare-rooted plants in rich soil in a pot with a 12in (30cm) diameter. Fill compost to 2in (5cm) from the top of the pot and firm down with a little pressure. Place plants evenly around the pot and bury the roots only. Water generously after planting. Do this anytime after autumn so they have the winter to develop their roots well.

From one plant expect a harvest in the first year of about half a punnet of delicious strawberries. In the second and third year you can expect a full punnet’s worth of strawberries each year.

In this pack of 3 plants you can expect more than 7 punnets of top-quality strawberries.

How your plants arrive   

You receive 3 young plants as bare-root specimens in one pack. This means each of your plants arrive to you as young plants containing a stub or stems attached to a large network of roots.

At this stage they are the perfect size to get growing, once you plant them up. During autumn and winter, the roots underground of these bare-root specimens get bigger and more developed. You’ll not notice much growth above the soil until spring, as it’s all going on for you under the soil surface.

From spring, the stems unfurl above the soil and produce lots of fruiting stems from the roots which developed well over the winter.

Your plants will arrive to you in a sealed plastic bag contained in a bubble-lined envelope or a box for larger orders. The sealed bag allows your young plants to stay healthy by giving them an ideal air and root environment when it arrives to you.

Check your 3 plants are there in the plastic bag, according to your order.

Can’t plant straight away?

If you cannot plant up your strawberry plants straight away into their permanent position make sure the plugs of your plants are kept moist at all times.

You can place your plants on a saucer or tray of water so the plugs are immersed at the beginning of the day. Keep an eye on them and take them out of the water once the soil is moist from absorbing the water beneath.

Keep your plants in a well-ventilated and light position in their plastic wallet after giving them water. Look to planting in their permanent position within 5-7 days.
