The enduring popularity of Strawberry 'Cambridge Favourite' has made it one of the most well-known and best-loved varieties. This mid-season strawberry produces abundant crops of juicy red fruits with an excellent flavour and texture from June to July.

Bare Root Strawberry Plants

Grow your own crop of sweet strawberries with these bare root strawberry plants. They are called bare root because the plants are dormant and aren't planted in soil, they look like bare roots with wilting leaves attached. Don't worry about what they look like when you get them, because as soon as they are planted they wake from their dormant state and spring to life, producing berries quite quickly. These grow particularly well in raised beds where there is no danger of waterlogging. They also grow perfectly in containers and urban planters.

We sell this variety of strawberry singly or as a pack of 6, use the 'Amount' tab above to choose.

Asked By Emer

Hi, is it too late to plant strawberries this year? Thank you
Answered by Niall
on November 29th, 2018
Hi Emer Strawberries are actually better put in over winter so the roots can get established in the soil before the growth overground in the Spring Regards Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Brian

I have a gutter screwed to my wall as have done before but what is the best variety to plant and I would prefer it to hang ? Many thanks
Answered by Niall
on July 30th, 2018
Hi Brian All varieties of Strawberry will grow while hanging over the edge of your hanging gutter. The cambridge favourite are particularly good as there flavour is so good Niall Quickcrop
Asked By John
on July 14th, 2018
When is the ideal time to plant these? Somebody told me in mid to late September for a good crop the next year. I plan to put these in pots, will this be okay?
Answered by Niall
on July 17th, 2018
Hi John The advice you have been given is correct. That said if you plant in mid summer you might be lucky enough to get a small crop this year if the weather stays fine. Regards Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Dave Rooney
on March 01st, 2018
Hi Niall, I’m thinking of planting blueberries and strawberries this year. Do they take a lot of caring or netting over to protect from birds? I have some large pots about 20inches high and wide, could I put 2 blueberries in the same pot or do they require a lot of space?
Answered by Niall
on March 01st, 2018
Hi Dave. Neither of them take a lot of minding as most of the fruit is really easy however protecting from the birds once the fruit is ready is the challenge. Netting is the key however as neither crop gets terribly high it is not that difficult. The size of the pots you have is ample for Blueberries. Regards Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Ciaran
on February 21st, 2018
Hi, Just wondering if these strawberries can be planting in a pvc pipe type of planter due to limited space, and should they fruit again in following years grown there?
Answered by Niall
on February 22nd, 2018
Hi Ciaran. Yes they grow very well this way however to give them longevity you would be better potting them up and putting them in a bed over winter. You can then transfer them back to the pipe for the fruit growing part of the year. Regards Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Conor
on February 20th, 2018
Will these do well in shade/partial shade or should they be in full sun?
Answered by Niall
on February 20th, 2018
Hi Conor. This particular variety will do fine in partial shade but as a general rule the more sun Strawberry plants get the better the crop.
Asked By Hugh
on February 12th, 2018
Hi I have ordered 6 plants and plan to put them directly into the greenhouse, is this ok, or should they only be planted outdoors?
Answered by Niall
on February 12th, 2018
Hi Hugh. No they are perfectly fine to go in to the greenhouse and should grow very nicely there.
Asked By Emmet
on February 06th, 2018
Hi, I was wondering what the advantage of bare root plants would be and what kind of yield these plants would have in the first year as opposed to plants in pots that would be on sale later in the year?
Answered by Niall
on February 07th, 2018
Hi Emmet. Bare root strawberries will come on that much quicker if put in at this time of year. They will give a similar yield to put bought strawberries but at half the cost.
Asked By Eimear
on January 31st, 2018
Just received my bare root strawberry, raspberry and tayberry plants, thanks. Is it to cold to plant them now (it was lightly snowing here today), or is it better just to get them into the ground? Is it ok to wait a while eg 3-10 days before planting and if so, should I be dampening them somehow? Thanks again
Answered by Niall
on February 01st, 2018
Good morning Eimear. Once the ground is not frozen below the surface it is fine to plant them all out. If you decide you won't be able to find the time to plant them just yet then give the roots of them all a good soaking and wrap the roots in wet paper. The worst thing that you can do is allow the roots to dry out for a week or so.
Asked By k
on October 21st, 2017
should these bare roots go immediately in the grown (pot) upon receiving in oct/Nov?
Answered by Andrew
on October 23rd, 2017
You are best to soak the roots in water for a few hours and then plant them either in pots or in the garden within a few days.
Asked By Rozz
on September 13th, 2017
Hi, I planted a couple of strawberry plants in out raised beds last spring 2017. Over the summer we got no fruit but the plants thrived! They have runners everywhere abd I really don't know how to deal with the amount of runners going into other beds abd even on the ground! Will I cut them off, can I make new runner plants at this time of year or discard and why no fruits or is this normal for first year? Thanks, Rozz
Answered by Andrew
on September 18th, 2017
Hi Rozz. Yes, you can pot up Strawberry runners at this time of year. You can clip the end of a runner into a pot of compost and cut them off once the plant has rooted. The fact that you had so much growth and no fruit points to over feeding with a nitrogen based fertilizer. Don't feed them next year other than to apply a potash rich fertilizer (tomato or strawberry feed) when they start to flower. A nitrogen rich fertilizer will cause lots of green growth at the expense of the fruit. Also, are the plants in full sun or are they in a very shaded spot?
Asked By Liam
on November 08th, 2016
When will your plants be back in stock? Is it too late to plant in the ground in Nov?
Answered by Andrew
on November 08th, 2016
Hi Liam. Anytime from November to April is good for putting in new fruit. We don't however stock Strawberries until early Spring as these are an exception to the rule
Answered by Andrew
on November 08th, 2016
Hi Liam. Yes, it is a bit late to planting strawberries out at this time of year. We have new plants back in stock in Spring which is the best time to put them in.
Asked By martin
on March 20th, 2016
what size are the strawberries
Answered by Andrew
on March 21st, 2016
Thank you for your question Martin. They are bare root Strawberries so when potted up they are about 4/5 inches tall
Asked By Paddy
on March 13th, 2016
When would be a suitable time to plant these into pots? I've received them earlier this week but am new to gardening to am unsure what time would be good to put them into soil.
Answered by Andrew
on March 14th, 2016
Thank you for your question Paddy. You can pot them on straight away as the sooner you do so the sooner the roots will start to spread out and the plants grow on.
Asked By Norman Scott
on February 08th, 2016
Hi, Can you tell me the variety of your strawberry plants please
Answered by Andrew
on February 09th, 2016
Thank you for your question Norman. I will put this on the website now. The variety is Cambridge Favourite. One of the tastiest we can get with a very high yield.
