As Duke can grow to a whopping 2m tall, this makes it perfect for large containers and the open ground. It also means lots of berries from one bush.” Harvest June-July. Height 1.5-2m. Supplied in a 2 litre pot.
Growing your own fruit has to be one of the most rewarding things any gardener can do. Not only can you grow varieties that you’d be hard pushed to find in any greengrocer, but you can grow the more expensive fruit, saving money along the way. Included in my fruit range are varieties I’ve grown for years on my allotment and in my garden, all of which are firm favourites of mine, my family and friends. All the varieties grow really well on an allotment and in a garden.
The variety Duke, is a larger plant which gives you more fruit from the same footprint as a smaller plant, so one plant will give you copious amounts of fruit to enjoy.
