Raspberry 'Polka' (6 cell grown plants)

Raspberry 'Polka' (6 cell grown plants) Code: RSP214

£21.95 inc. p&p 21.9500 In Stock New

Rubus idaeus 'Polka'

This excellent new autumn fruiting primocane raspberry was selected as the leading raspberry variety at the prestigious National Fruit Show in Kent for four consecutive years. The fruits are exceptionally large and have a superb aromatic flavour. Very heavy cropping, producing up to double the yield of Autumn Bliss (one of its parents). The canes may not require supporting in sheltered gardens. Polka will commence cropping at least two weeks earlier than Autumn Bliss.

 

The use of quality cell grown raspberry plants to establish commercial fruiting plantations is now a widely accepted technique and is becoming increasingly popular with home gardeners. Raised in 4cm cells, these plants will give reliable establishment in the first season. Due to the way the plants grow in the cell, there is virtually no transplant shock and therefore a much better chance of survival compared with bare root canes. Furthermore, they are planted out during the late spring and early summer when weather conditions are more favourable.

RHS Award of Garden Merit  RHS Perfect for Pollinators


Season: Autumn (mid July - Oct).


Available for delivery: late May - mid August.
