Tayberry 'Buckingham' Bush - Rubus fruticosus x idaeus - 3L Pot

A relation of the raspberry and the blackberry, the tayberry is one of the more recent hybrid brambles, and seems to be here to stay. The fruits are nearly double the size of a raspberry, larger and longer, with a darker red-brown colouring. Luckily, this variety is thornless, making them easier to be picked, which is best done when the berry has turned from dark red to a deep purple.

Fruit Benefits

These fruits should be eaten or frozen within a few days of harvest. They please even the most sophisticated of palates, and can be made into jams and preserves to bring great summer memories on autumn or winter days. Freshly picked fruit will bring your desserts to life with a flavour that simply can't be matched by mass produced, shop bought fruit. When planning your garden, try to choose varieties with fruits that ripen from early summer to late autumn to ensure a constant supply of fresh fruits throughout the warmer months.

It is important to water your newly-planted raspberries or blackberries on a frequent basis (at least bimonthly for two months). You should also ensure adequate spacing (40 - 60cm) between each bush.

    • With bare root plants, you should soak their roots in water for up to 2 hours before planting, while with potted plants, you should drench their rootball.
    • If you are planting a bare root plant, dig a hole so that their first roots are no more than 2 inches below the ground.
    • If you are planting a containerised plant, make sure that the pot sits no lower than an inch below the ground.
    Please see below for our planting guidance:

  • Fill the planting hole with a mix of compost and garden soil, and add fertiliser and mycorrhizal fungi. Take care to not compress the soil.
  • Once you are happy with your efforts, provide your plant with a good watering.
  • Add mulch on top (whether bark and wood chippings, compost, manure, leaf-mould, and stones). Try to keep the mulch from touching the stem.
  • Blackberry and raspberry bushes are wonderful for the beginner grower. Below we address some common query topics:

    • Hardiness: Native to the UK, your blackberry or raspberry plant is well accustomed to the milder climate.
    • Position: Planting in full sun is always recommended, however they still tolerate light shade.
    • Soil: Soil types can be an unwelcome confusion as many plants will adapt to their conditions. Nonetheless, less than ideal conditions will certainly limit your plant’s growth. Waterlogged soils will starve your plant of oxygen, which plays a key role in photosynthesis; causing its roots to rot and creating an optimal environment for disease.
