MORE INFORMATION

Do not settle for everyday strawberries this year - instead produce a heavy crop of 'king sized' fruits that even taste exceptional!

While many larger-than-normal fruits sacrifice some flavour for size, the produce of 'Colossus' could not be further from this, with massive strawberries bursting with flavour.

As a traditional June-bearing plant, most of the bountiful harvest will be seen in early summer, offering tasty treats just in time for Wimbledon! The conical berries are sweet and juicy, often weighing more than 40g each. You'll get plenty of them too so overall yields will be very rewarding.

Grow this super new strawberry in a row in the garden or plant in containers. Just be sure to protect from blackbirds as they will love these jumbo strawberries almost as much as you!

Supplied as a set of 12 jumbo plugs, ready to grow on before planting out.

CARE INFORMATION

Top Tips

Strawberries should be planted out as soon as possible - only plant outdoors once all risk of frost has gone.

Care Guide

  • Plant in a sunny and sheltered position in fertile, free-draining soil. Poor soil can be improved by adding compost or well-rotted manure prior to 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 crown should be level with the soil surface.
    If you plant strawberries too deep, they might rot, but if you leave the crown protruding from the soil, the plant will dry out and die. Firm your plants in well and water thoroughly.
  • 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 air flow 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.
