Growing Calendar for Award Winning Raspberry Collection x18 Canes
Delivery: Early November to Early May
All three of these well-known primocane varieties are proven winners, carrying the coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit.
Primocane varieties flower and fruit on the first year's growth, and are exceptionally easy to maintain and care for. They will fruit well into autumn - even after October - and being short, the canes need little or no support.
All three are perfect for the home gardener or those with smaller fruit and vegetable plots. The collection consists of 18 canes, six canes each of:
Autumn Bliss-With its distinctive red berries, disease resistance and long cropping season from early August to first frosts, this short, strong caned variety has been the gardeners' choice for many years.
All Gold-A novel variety producing attractive yellow fruit for lovely autumn colour. The same vigour, habit and cropping potential as Autumn Bliss but with superior, sweeter-tasting fruit.
Polka-The ‘must have' primocane variety for every home gardener, with exceptional yields of up to 2.5kg per plant in ideal conditions, and sweet tasting fruit twice the size of Autumn Bliss!
The prize-attributes of primocane raspberries?
You can pick primocane raspberries until the first frost!
Plant & eat same year! Primocane varieties flower and fruit in the first year.
They are easy to maintain: simply cut back to ground level in January/February.
Short, sturdy canes need less support and are easier to grow - perfect for smaller gardens or when you are short of space.
Primocane (autumn-fruiting) varieties fruit on canes produced in the current year. After cropping, these should be cut down to ground level to promote the growth of new canes. Allow primocane raspberry beds to spread up to 75cm (2 1/2 ft) wide but dig out any canes which start to grow between the rows.
The delivery came when stated, plus the root system was was fantastic on the raspberry canes, so Iím expecting a great crop this time next year.
Let's wait and see if they bear fruit
18 raspberry canes varied greatly from having very good root systems to having hardly any roots at all. They are in the ground so we will have to wait and see.
