Crops in June through to October!
Sweet dark-red berries
Improved disease resistance
From the latest breeding in 'ever-bearing' varieties, Strawberry 'Albion' begins cropping in June and continues in flushes until the end of October! Each strawberry plant is capable of producing 450g (1lb) of tasty fruit each year! The heavy crops of mouth-watering, sweet, dark-red berries have an outstanding flavour that remains consistent throughout the summer. Better still, this vigorous variety has improved disease resistance to verticillium wilt and crown rot.
Cropping periods can also be brought forward or extended if you are growing them in a greenhouse or polytunnel. Strawberry 'Albion' is well suited to growing in containers for a space saving crop on the patio. Height: 20cm (8"). Spread: 30cm (12").
Estimated time to cropping once planted: 4-8 months.
Estimated time to best yields: 4-8 months.
Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. For more details about edible flowers click here.
Height Up to 20cm (8in)

These plants are lifted from the nursery field when dormant, and sent to you in late autumn or spring for planting. They often look dead on arrival, but they are just resting in the dormant period and will establish quickly for a strong start in the garden come spring. Set out in prepared soil in holes wide enough and deep enough to lay out the roots. Tread down the planting soil to knock out air pockets. Water well to settle. Apply a mulch to protect roots from cold temperatures. If conditions prevent immediate planting, set roughly into loose soil or a pot of compost (‘heeling in’) to protect the roots. The growth points of most bare root perennials should be set about an inch below the soil surface. New growth will appear in spring.
Water strawberries frequently throughout the growing season and weed regularly between rows. When growing strawberry plants in baskets and containers, they will also need feeding every two weeks.
From early summer, remove any runners that are produced as these will weaken the plants vigour. Protect the developing fruit from slugs and snails by spreading straw around each plant. Positioning a net over the plants will also prevent crop damage by birds. The netting and straw can be removed after cropping to allow better air flow around the crown of the plant. Mulch strawberry plants with well rotted manure in spring.
Although strawberry plants will continue to fruit in successive years, the crop will become considerably reduced and it is advisable to completely replace strawberry plants every 3 years.
