Care Guide

Excellent pest and disease resistance

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

Water regularly

Water in thoroughly when planting. Wineberries 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

Position where your plants will receive sunlight for more than 6 hours each day during the spring/summer.MORE

Any fertile, well-drained soil

If your soil is particularly clay heavy and gets waterlogged often, make sure you mix in plenty of organic matter and perhaps even gravel or perlite to help improve drainage.MORE

Feeding not required

No feeding neededMORE

Prune in autumn/winter

Wineberries fruit on 2 year old wood, so last years growth. To ensure good crops, make sure that you preserve the new shoots each year and then prune away the canes which have fruited that summer. You're aiming to achieve a balance of new growth and fruiting wood for each year.MORE
