TILLAMOOK

Product Description:

(June bearing) Hailing from Oregon and proudly bearing the name of a Native American tribe, Tillamook is an exceptional, high-yielding plant with lip-smacking berries. The medium sized fruit is glossy red with tender, juicy flesh that’s richly sweet and balanced with a touch of sour. Adding to the Tillamook experience is the berry’s fragrant aroma. Best described as floral with hints of vanilla, it complements the flavor for an addictive taste adventure.  

Strawberry plants are shipped bare root in mid-March. Order early for best availability. Detailed planting information and growing instructions are included with each order. Not available to US Territories or Canada.

great if you're after matchsticks

I've grown strawberries from bare roots for years, at least three batches from Territorial and another 10 or so from Burpee. Never had any problem.

This year I went with these. I should have known there would be trouble when they were delivered and were extremely brittle. Instead of requesting an immediate replacement, I planted them, thinking surely Territorial has quality checks for its suppliers.

Five weeks of careful watering and plenty of sun later, there was zero evidence of life. Territorial would not do a replacement, and said if I wrote back after another five weeks they might do a refund. That doesn't get my growing season back. They shipped dead roots.

The bareroot plants we ship are dormant (not dead) and should be planted immediately upon arrival. They can be planted in 4-inch pots and held for a few weeks if your soil is not ready when you receive the plants. Sounds like you've had great success in the past and apologize that wasn't the case this time. I have reached out to our customer service about issuing you a refund and you should receive notification once completed.
