More Information

Raspberries are an excellent crop to grow as once established they will crop heavily, producing up to 1.5kg (over 3lbs) of fruit per cane for 10 years or more. They can be planted as close as 40cm (16in) apart with a gap of 1.5m (5ft) between rows.  When planting it is important to choose a well-drained, sunny or semi-shaded spot and to incorporate plenty of compost or well-rotted manure.  Our hand graded raspberry canes are raised on selected sites in the U.K., inspected by DEFRA for pests and diseases and certified under the Plant Health Propagation Scheme (PHPS). Raspberry canes are available from late November to early May.

 

Don't forget to include a Gripple Wire Tensioning Kit on your order, the easy way to support raspberry canes.  For better establishment we strongly advise using Rootgrow  when planting (as recommended in RHS planting guidelines).
