Soft Fruit Plants - Full List

The Best Soft Fruit Varieties

The complete list of Soft Fruit bushes & canes, including strawberries, raspberries, gooseberries, currants and more. Fruit trees are delicious too, but fresh, home-grown berries are the sweetest crop you can get, and as bad as a supermarket apple can be, a supermarket strawberry is usually worse and more overpriced, so they are even better value to grow at home!

All of our soft fruit plants are grown in the UK, with free delivery on orders over £60 for bareroot stock or £100 for pot grown, and they are covered by our replacement Guarantee for your peace of mind.
