1ft 'Glen Ample' Raspberry Bush | 3L Pot

Heavy cropper of large sweet fruit

An exceptional variety! One of the best and heaviest cropping mid-season varieties around, second only to Glen Doll. The spine-free cane are upright and vigorous and produce long fruiting laterals with sparse foliage for easy picking. Exceptionally high yields of very large, bright fruit of superb flavour. The fruit also holds well without spoiling. Ample has a good level of disease resistance.

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.

"Top quality plant. the plants I have received from Primrose over the years have always been the best quality and thrived very well."

"Extremely disappointed. Received 2 single plants I can only describe as 'twigs' measuring approximately 2 inches each and totally bare. Queried this with Primrose.co.uk, as based on the description provided these shrubs were supposedly 3 years old and I was expecting something more substantial. I was told that what I had been sent matched the description. I went to a nearby garden centre (which I wish I had done in the first instance) and found raspberry canes measuring approximately 50cms with 4 canes in each pot and bearing fruit for £5 a piece. Draw your own conclusion ..."
