1ft 'Medana' Tayberry Bush | 3L Pot
Tayberry 'Medana' Bush - Ribes Nigrum - 3L Pot
The 'Medana' is a tayberry which originated in Scotland, with reddish-purple fruits of delicious flavour and with excellent disease resistance. A hybrid created by cross breeding a raspberry and a blackberry, they have a sweet taste, delicious as a purée with yoghurt or ice cream, or use in pies, jams or juices. The fruits freeze very well if you would like to keep some for future use. Late-blooming, in July to August, to avoid late spring frosts.

- 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.
- 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.
