prolonging strawberry season
« on: July 15, 2012, 20:50 »

Hi
   I grew honeoye strawberries this year,had loads off them,but they have now all finished.

   They began cropping at the beginning of June.

   I was hoping someone could suggest some other varieties that would prolong the season.

  I was reading up on everbearing ones,but am unsure on them.

  Thanks Carl

Our main ones are marshmello, and I take five plants into the greenhouse once they have been well frosted, as this then gives us an early crop. I hand pollinate these

We also have a few plants of Amelia, which are slightly more scaret in colour, not that deep luscious crimson. They do well and taste good. They start to crop in August usually: easy to get I think

Hope that helps

Hi Carl,

I also enquired in a recent post so thought you might find the suggestions useful:
