Product Information

  • Produces deliciously sweet flavour berries
  • Perfect for making jams and puddings
  • Supplied as a pack of 20 Class 1 runners
Bite into freshness with the wilko Cambridge Favourite Strawberry Runners. Cambridge Favourite is an extremely popular garden variety that is widely grown in the UK. These hardy plants, which are British-bred, are now available for planting, and they are expected to bloom and bear fruit from this summer onwards. The fruit has a deliciously sweet flavour, and if you can't resist eating them fresh from the plant, they are perfect for making jams and puddings. They are supplied as a pack of 20 Class 1 runners and grow up to H30 x W30cm. You can plant them from August to October, and from January to May. They can be harvested from June to July. Care information: Strawberry plugs should be potted on and planted out as soon as possible, but only plant outdoors once all risk of frost has gone. Plant in a sunny and sheltered position in fertile, free-draining soil. Poor soil can be improved by adding compost or well-rotted manure before planting. Give your strawberries plenty of space. Dig a hole with a trowel big enough to take the roots of the plant. Plant them 45cm apart, leaving 75cm between rows - the top of the plug root should be level with the soil surface. If you're planting into a basket, it's best to limit yourself to three or four strawberry plants in a 30cm basket. Add water-retaining granules and slow-release fertiliser into the compost before planting. Check the compost daily in hot weather – water if the top half-inch of compost feels dry. If growing strawberries in pots or hanging baskets, feed them every two weeks during the growing season with a balanced fertiliser. When flowering begins, switch to a high-potash liquid fertiliser to encourage good fruiting. As the fruits develop, place dry straw or mulching fabric underneath to stop splashes blemishing the fruit. After cropping, remove any straw and netting to allow better airflow around the crown of the plant. As the summer progresses, keep on top of weeding and continue to remove any runners. Clear away dead foliage as this can harbour pests and diseases over winter. Each spring spread a general-purpose fertiliser around your plants along with a mulch of well-rotted manure or compost.
