Mr Fothergill's have sent me two new varieties of strawberries that they have added to their catalogue for 2024 these are Strawberry Marshmello A+ Grade Fruit Plants and Strawberry Allegro A+ Grade Fruit Plants. They are supposed to dispatch from the 21st February but they turned up at my front door on the 9th February, so I may have to put them in pots for a while until I get their new home ready on the allotment.
The Strawberry Marshmello A+ Grade Fruit Plants and Strawberry Allegro A+ Grade Fruit Plants both sell for £15.95 for 10 plants.
Mr Fothergill's web site says Strawberry Allegro A+ is really proving to be a fantastic variety, possibly the most vigorous and robust strawberry they have ever found! If you have poor soil or have grown strawberries on the same ground and cannot rotate then this is the variety for you - this variety was developed on the worst ground you can imagine and proved to be resistant to many soil borne diseases. With high sugar levels for sweetness and an excellent juicy flavour - its certainly one to find a spot for in your garden. Delivered as dormant bare rooted A+ grade plants.
