An early thornless variety. Waldo is a heavy cropper of firm, attractive fruit with a glossy appearance. The berries are extremely large and have an exceptional flavour. Growth is compact so a good choice if space is at a premium – can even be grown self-supporting as a bush. Ideal for planting against a wall or fence or growing in a container. Performs best when planted in sun or partial shade. Highly recommended.
Eventual height and spread: 1.8m (6ft). Cropping season: August/September. Self fertile.
*Bareroot – November to March is the ideal time to plant bare-root plants. These are plants that have been grown in open ground, then dug up for dispatch and planting during the dormant season. They are called ‘bare-root’ plants as they are supplied with no soil around their roots. They will come packed in damp compost to stop the roots drying out and should be planted as soon as possible. As long as the compost is kept damp planting can be delayed for a few weeks if necessary.
