Early variety of Wild Strawberry with tasty red fruits which can be up to 25mm in diameter, Baron von Solemacher was first offered by F.C. Heinemann of Germany in 1935. Very hardy, these wild strawberry plants eventually mature to approx.25cm by 25cm. Will flower and fruit from early spring until the first frosts. Flowers have both male and female organs and are pollinated by bees, moths and butterflies. The berries, rich in iron, vitamin C and potassium are sweet and succulent with an exquisite flavour and aroma. Fruit can be eaten fresh or cooked and made into jams, tarts or puddings. The leaves of the wild strawberry can be made into a tea-like drink and used as a herbal remedy to treat arthritis, stomach upsets and other digestion problems. Prefers a fertile, well drained moisture retentive soil but is not fussy whether conditions are acid or alkaline. Best in full sun or light shade but can tolerate semi-shade although this will reduce fruit production. Excellent along woodland edges where it seems to thrive when mulched by pine or spruce leaves. Delivered growing in 10cm pots and ready to plant out. PACK 3 PLANTS IMMEDIATE DELIVERY All our items are checked and inspected visually before packing.
