Strawberries Please

I confess (hanging my head in shame) to letting my strawberry patch run wild, it has steadily decreased fruit production over the years while expending all its energy into runners.
I haven't weeded, thinned, fertilized or looked after them in general so I'm now reaping what I sowed.

So to make amends I have purchased from Diggers

10 x Hokowase - exceptionally sweet & early fruiting Japanese strawberry
20 x Cambridge Rival - sweet, rich and fragrant English heirloom strawberry

and I promise to look after them.

Once I plant them that is, as they are currently languishing on my kitchen bench...
