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 or partial shade

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

Blackberries 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
