The classic late fruiting raspberry

This plant is something special: Truly one of the finest late season summer fruits you can buy!

Autumn Bliss raspberry canes carry the latest raspberries of the year. Cropping begins slowly in August, then picks up the pace in September and in warmer years you can carry on picking into October. This extending cropping period allows you to carry the taste of summer into autumn when most other summer berries are long gone.

Autumn bliss produces large, firm, red berries bursting with flavour. Being one of the best flavoured raspberries, Autumn Bliss berries are perfect for putting in tarts, pies, crumble, and jam. Lilac pink flowers bloom on the branches in spring, adding an extra elegance.

The short, erect, spiny canes are sturdy and need only minimal support, while the berries have good keeping qualities. The plant has good resistance to root rot. An excellent British bred variety - very highly recommended.

Our soft fruit plants are carefully checked by our fruit nursery experts prior to despatch to ensure they are up to size and in perfect condition.

Larger orders are packed into specially made, extra thick cardboard boxes with innovative inserts that hold your plants in place to prevent any damage in transit.

Small orders for bare root plants are carefully wrapped and then sent in padded mail bags for delivery in the large letter postal service where there are no larger items capable of causing damage.

Key is to regularly water newly-planted bushes, at least bimonthly for two months. It is also important to ensure adequate spacing (40-60cm) between bushes.

With bare root plants, it's important to soak its roots in water for up to 2 hours before planting, while with potted plants it is important to drench the rootball. With bare root plants, dig a hole so as to ensure its first roots are no more than 2 inches below ground level, while with containerised plants, ensure the pot sits no lower than an inch below ground

Dig a hole twice the radius of the rootball. Fill the hole with a mix of compost and garden soil, and add fertiliser and mycorrhizal fungi. Do not compress the soil. Give your plant a good watering. Add mulch on top whether bark and wood chippings, compost, manure, leaf-mould and stones. Make sure mulch doesn't touch the stem.

Raspberry bushes are extremely easy to grow. Below we address some common queries:

  • Hardiness: as raspberry plants are native to the UK, they will not be die in the cold.
  • Position: in the UK, the greatest barrier to successful fruiting is a lack of sunlight, so planting in full sun is recommended, although raspberries will tolerate light shade. Planting your bush in a sheltered spot will help prevent uprooting and allow it to put more resources into fruiting. As raspberries are tied to supports, planting against a south facing wall is useful.
  • Soil Types: Soil types are best ignored and remain an unwelcome confusion. Every plant will adapt to its conditions. Having said that, less than ideal conditions will reduce growth. Waterlogged soils will starve your plant of oxygen, which plays a key role in photosynthesis, cause its roots to rot and create the perfect environment for many diseases.

"I am not an expert gardener, but I believe that the plant should have been pruned for planting. This should have been done before dispatch. I'm giving a good rating because unlike the tayberry it was a good specimen."
