Benefits of bare root ‘Florence’ strawberry plants

You don’t need acres of space and fully fledged garden beds to enjoy the delicious taste of strawberry ‘Florence’. Only growing to 20cm high, this late-season fruiter can be happily grown in a container or hanging basket, and can be harvested from late June to the end of July. Or if you fancy an extended harvest, grow this variety in a polytunnel or greenhouse and enjoy the taste of summer early!

Throughout the growing season, Strawberry ‘Florence’ shows great resistance to pests and diseases and, as a hardy perennial, it returns every year with a sweet crop of firm and colourful strawberries. 

The benefits of bare root vs potted varieties

As one of the most cost-effective ways to grow your favourite fruit or veg at home, bare root plants also tend to have superior root health, establish faster in the garden, and have a smaller chance of producing weaker crops. Arriving at your door as dormant plants that need just a little TLC, your strawberries will also have less transplant shock than seedlings or potted varieties. 

Plant your dormant bare-root plants in spring, making sure to choose a spot that gets lots of warm sun. Use quality multi-purpose compost if you’re growing in containers, and remember to give your strawberries a good drink of water after planting to settle them in.
