1ft 'Buckingham' Tayberry Bush | 2L Pot
Tayberry 'Buckingham' Bush - Rubus fruticosus x idaeus - 2L 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.

Caring and Maintenance

Water during dry periods. Remove any weeds by hand and place a mulch around the plant in winter if you would like to avoid further weeds. Prune when dormant between late autumn and late winter. Aim to remove the old wood, as fruit grows on new wood.


  • Planting Distance: 1.2m

Blackcurrants tolerate a wide range of soil conditions, but prefer well-drained conditions. A pH of 6.0 - 7.5 is ideal. They prefer full sun, but will also grow in partial shade.
Dig a hole at least twice the size of the root ball. Ideally mulch with compost or rotted manure. Firm the bush in well before watering.

Can be planted at any time of the year, as it is a containerised plant.

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.
