Seed Swaps

Strawberry 'Cambridge Favourite'        

Bought from Homebase as a seedling – originally kept it in a pot for a while until it started to get too big. It now has a home on the back kitchen window (along with a runner or two it produced during the summer). I haven’t got much fruit from this one in comparison to the Elsanta – but what it did produce was pretty tasty indeed.
