I would just like to say thank you for the excellent service. The plants came quickly, well wrapped and still moist on arrival, with good roots. They are now planted and I look forward to watching them grow. Thanks.

Dating from 1892, Royal Sovereign was probably the pinnacle of Thomas Laxton's strawberry-breeding career, Thomas Laxton can be considered the 'father' of the modern strawberry. It was an extremely popular variety between 1920 and 1960 and even served at Queen Elizabeth II Cornation banquet. The fact that it is still sought after is a testament to its versatility.

Although the plants are not as large as modern varieties and the yield a little smaller and it's shelf life not as long as some, its superb flavour makes up for all this and when your growing your own the taste is the most important factor. This truly is a fantastic strawberry with a wonderful traditional flavour.

The fruits have a high juice content and a very sweet flavour.

Recommended by the RHS to be an excellent attractant and nectar source for bees and other beneficial insects.

  • Self-fertile.
  • Ideal for growing either in pots or the open ground.
