Growing Calendar for Strawberry Plants Misted Tips - Long Harvest Collection
Delivery: Early August to Late September
Misted Tip Strawberries have become very popular for late summer planting. This innovative process in strawberry production is increasingly being used by commercial growers to give bigger and better first year yields.
Plants are produced by taking early, un-rooted runner tips from specially selected mother plants. These are rooted into individual modules in a mist propagation unit and when planted in late summer, (up until end of August) the plants establish quickly and form a strong root network underground over winter rather than in spring, ensuring plants are ready to put up lots of flowering stems for harvests earlier in the season.
This fantastic collection includes an early, mid and late season variety, meaning you'll be able to enjoy crops for as long as possible through the summer.
Collection consists of 6 Potted Plants each of:
Strawberry Christine (Early) -With large very bright orange-red fruit with an exceptionally fine sweet flavour. Christine is the best early variety for disease resistance.
Malling Centenary (Main)- A New introduction from East Malling to mark 100 years of unparalleled UK fruit breeding. Plants produce very attractive glossy fruit with a good shape and stunning flavour
Strawberry Fenella (Late)-Lush plants with attractive glossy, bright orange-red berries of a good uniform shape. Superb sweet flavour and juicy texture it has been proven to have the best ‘rain resistant’ fruit. Plants are very hardy and grow well even in the North of the country.
Strawberry Fenella and Malling Centenary are protected by Plant Variety Rights and cannot be propagated even for own use and resold without licence.
