Strawberry Florence is ideal for a late season harvest producing delicious sweet strawberries from the end of June to the end of July. Bred by HRI East Malling this is an excellent variety for firm flavoursome well coloured fruits. A prolific cropper with exceptional pest and disease resistance it is well suited to growing in containers for a space saving crop on the patio. Cropping periods can also be brought forward or extended if you are growing them in a greenhouse or polytunnel.

Type: Hardy Perennial
Flowering period: May
Height: 20 cm
Spread: 30 cm

Plant strawberry plants in a sheltered sunny position in well manured free draining soil. Plant strawberry runners every 45cm in rows spaced at 75cm apart. Spread out their roots and place them in the soil at a level where the crown of the plant is just poking above the surface. Avoid planting them too deeply as this may cause them to rot. Alternatively try growing strawberry plants in hanging baskets or in specially designed strawberry planters for the patio.

Water strawberries frequently throughout the growing season and weed regularly between rows. When growing strawberry plants in baskets and containers they will also need feeding every two weeks. From early summer remove any runners that are produced as these will weaken the plants vigour. Protect the developing fruit from slugs and snails by spreading straw around each plant. Positioning a net over the plants will also prevent crop damage by birds. The netting and straw can be removed after cropping to allow better air flow around the crown of the plant. Mulch strawberry plants with well rotted manure in spring. Although strawberry plants will continue to fruit in successive years the crop will become considerably reduced and it is advisable to completely replace strawberry plants every 3 years.
