Strawberry plants to buy now

We did well with our strawberries this year, though we had to grow them in vertical planters out of the way of dogs and hen.
We had a mix of Honeoye, Cambridge favourite and Florence.
For next year, we'd like another few plants of different varieties.
What do you grow and what do you recommend please?

    A perpetual variety often considered as having the best taste and perfume.
    They produce from around June until Sept/Oct.
    No good for making jam as the whole lot do not ripen at the same time, but the flavour and scent is exceptional when they're properly dark red and ripe.

    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.
  • Just ordered some more myself and I found this which might help. 
    I actually ordered Cambridge favourite and Florence because we didn't have them. I think I also went for finesse and eros to go with the ones we already have of unknown variety.
