Strawberry Plants - Sweet Colossus x6

  • Catalogue Code 1060-5897
  • Pack Contents: 6 Plug Plants

Sweet Colossus lives up to its name, producing gigantic berries that can weigh up to 43g (1 ½ oz) each with no compromise to flavour. Fast-growing, these plants that are easy to maintain.

1 plant will give you about a half punnet of strawberries in its first year, then a full punnet in its second year and a full punnet in its third year. This equates to 15 punnets of delicious strawberries from growing just 6 plants. 

Once the new green leaves start to grow in spring feed with a high-potassium feed to encourage flowering and fruiting.

How you receive your plants

You receive our strawberry plants in a plastic blister containing plants that each have a soil ball of roots attached to a short stem of young leaves. This is perfect for planting up now as the roots are itching to get established in the ground which support lots of strong fruiting stems in the growing season for delicious strawberries.

Can't plant straight away?

You can keep your young plants in their plastic container for as long as 3-5 days so long as you make sure the soil part around the roots is kept moist.

Keep your plants in a light, cool position like an unheated porch or greenhouse.

Look to planting in their permanent position within 5 days.
