Time to first crop:
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
Ideally, plant somewhere the plant will receive 6-8 hours of direct sunlight every day. Leucanthemum will also do well in partial shade.MORE

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