It is important to regularly water newly-planted bushes, 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 their first roots are no more than 2 inches below ground level.
- 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.
About your Plant
Your plant will be carefully assessed by our fruit nursery experts prior to being dispatched. This will ensure that they are up to size and arrive in good condition.
Larger orders are packed into specially made, extra thick cardboard boxes. These feature innovative inserts that hold your plants in place to prevent any damage in transit. Small orders for bare root plants are carefully wrapped and delivered in padded mail bags. These will be sent via the large letter postal service (where no larger items are present that can cause damage).
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 plantÃ¢â‚¬â„¢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.
