Caring and Maintenance

Water around 1 inch a week. Remove any weeds or rocks 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.

Planting

  • Planting Distance: 45cm

Raspberry bushes prefer well-drained conditions. A pH of 5.8 - 6.5 is ideal. They can tolerate light shade conditions, but will be more productive in a sunny and sheltered site.
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.

Ideally, you should plant your raspberry bush between November and March.

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.
