Strawberries for strawberries
« on: August 10, 2013, 12:47:01 pm »
I have about 75 strawberry plug plants ( got very carried away with my seed sowing this year ::) )
If anyone would like any in exchange for some other variety of strawberry runners or plants, I would be happy with any variety or colour but please not alpines I have 100's :innocent: . I would be happy to cover the cost of sending to you if you would do the same.

They are Mignonette strawberry

This variety produces dainty red fruits as early as June. The plants do not produce runners like other varieties. The fruits are small and sweet with a hint of an Almond flavour. This variety will produce fruits in the 1st Year and a heavier crop in the following year.
The above description is taken from the Internet ( the place I got the seeds from)

This my be the wrong time of year to swap, but if anyone would like to I'm happy to send them now for replacements later in the year if that is any help.

That sounds like a great idea. I have 2 types Royal Sovereign and Symphony but I lost the labels so I don't know which is which. If that isn't a problem I'll pot up some runners for you as I'd love some of the ones you describe  :)
Our holding has Anglo Nubian and British Toggenburg goats, Gotland sheep, Franconian Geese, Blue Swedish ducks, a whole load of mongrel hens and two semi-feral children.
