Rubus fruticosus x idaeus | Tayberry Plant
Tayberry 3L Pot by James McIntyre & Sons
A vigorous blackberry/raspberry hybrid. High yields of juicy, sweet, aromatic berries that can be twice the weight of a large raspberry. Consistently higher yielding than Loganberry, the long conical fruit is best picked when deep purple-red in colour. Excellent for jam making and puddings but can also be eaten fresh. The fruit freezes well too. The stout prickly stems require permanent support so train against a wall or fence. Self fertile.

Advice on hot and droopy plants
If your plants are looking a little wilted right now, don’t worry! Plants like to be filled with water to keep their structure, and when it’s hot that water evaporates.
Just give them an off-schedule watering and they’ll be right as rain in no time! Be careful not to flood them - plants don’t like extremes.
