Thompson and Morgan Strawberry Florian 10 seeds
Strawberry Florian has gorgeous apple blossom-pink flowers that produce a heavy crop of good-sized juicy red fruits. Strawberries tasty but also rich in fibre and very high in Vitamin C. Did you know, if you eat 5 berries a day, they will provide more vitamin C than an orange.
These can be grown under glass, but as fruits hang from the main plant as well as its runners, it is ideal for growing under glass or on a sunny patio in baskets or containers.
Harvest: July until first frosts, or May from early sowings
Ideal for: Baskets and Containers
Sow: January to April for summer picking or October to December for early glass production.
Sow seeds on the surface of a good seed compost and lightly cover with a sprinkling of vermiculite. Place in a propagator or sealed container inside a polythene bag at a warm temperature of 15-21C (60-70F) until after germination, which can be up to 21 days. Do not exclude light, as this helps germination.
Growing: Transplant when the seedlings are large enough to handle, about 6 weeks after sowing, into trays or 7.5cm (3”) pots. Grow on in cooler conditions and plant out once all frost risk has passed in a rich, well-drained site in full sun. Allow 30cm (12”) between plants if planted outside, or into baskets or containers. If planted and grown under glass, earlier crops will be harvested.
Quantity: Average 10 seeds
