Fuss-free variety suitable for containers

'Tulameen' raspberry is one of the best tasting varieties you will find. It is super sweet, full of flavour and the berries themselves are large, often the size of cherries, and fall of the canes at a gentle pull when ready to harvest. The plant grows in a clumping fashion and has minimal thorns which makes harvesting that bit less… painful. They keep and freeze well really well, that is if you can stop yourself from eating them! They are delicious on top of ice cream or made into jams or pies.

It is a mid to late season plant which produces a great yield for up to 50 days! It is very versatile and is perfect for growing in a container so you can sit it on your patio, not too far from the kitchen. Raspberries are produced from the first year and the plant shows good resistance to cold and disease/pests.

Bred in Canada, 'Tulameen' is now one of the most popular summer fruiting varieties due to its versatility and the quality of its fruit. A truly outstanding variety with extremely high yields of superb quality glossy fruits that have an excellent, sweet aromatic flavour. The berries are large, bright red and have a distinctive conical shape. The fruit is borne on long, almost spine-free laterals, making them very easy to pick. An excellent variety for growing in pots/containers where the long canes can be trained up an obelisk or bamboo cane wigwam. Resistant to botrytis.

It is important to water your newly-planted raspberries or blackberries on a frequent basis (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 that their first roots are no more than 2 inches below the ground.
    • 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.
  • 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.

    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 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.
