The Highlights

    • A spectacular autumn fruiting (primocane) variety which has been awarded the RHS Award of Garden Merit for its wonderful flavour, reliable crop and ease of growing
    • This has been a soft fruit growers' favourite for many years now, extending that picking season right the way into October
    • The fruit ripens later and so is full of rich, aromatic flavours with a extraordinary sweetness
    • Expect to harvest from late August through to October
    • Plant on a sunny spot in rows, with 50cm between canes and tie into supports as they grow. Can even be planted in a large pot (40cm+ in diameter).
    • Primocane (Autumn fruiting) variety Primocane varieties fruit on this years new wood, so it is important to get the pruning right. Cut back all the canes to the ground after fruiting so that new shoots will grow next spring. That is what will bear your next harvest.MORE

Care Guide

Excellent

Has been bred for excellent disease resistance. Your biggest problem, as with most soft fruit, is that they are so delicious that local wildlife will want to eat them too. Grow in a polytunnel, or use a fruit net to keep birds off.MORE

Keep well watered

Water in thoroughly when planting. Raspberries prefer moist soils so make sure that they are well watered throughout summer, especially during drier periods. 1/2 time a week increasing to every other day when hot/ dry.MORE

Full sun

Full sun means receiving direct sun for more than 6 hours each day during the spring/summer.MORE

Prefers fertile, well draining soil.

Loam or sandy soil is perfect. You should also consider digging in some organic matter/ compost when planting to improve the soilMORE

No need to feed

Don't worry, this isn't a hungry plant so your food bills won't be going up!MORE

Requires pruning in autumn/ winter

Primocane - during autumn, cut down all canes that bore fruit this year. Aim to leave 6 of the strongest new canes and then prune away the rest down to ground level. Flurocane - Prune in late winter, cutting back all of the canes right down to ground level. New growth will come bearing this years fruitMORE
