Growing Calendar for Japanese Wineberry (Rubus phoenicolasius) x3
Delivery: Early September to Late July
Collection of three plants that would decorate a large wooden fence or wall in winter and provide lots of raspberry-like fruit in autumn. Best trained against a wall or a fence the fruit is best eaten straight off the plant but also can be used in cooking and preserves. This variety has great ornamental aspects with deep red stems that stand out in winter.
Plant near to a vertical – such as a wall or fence so that you can train stems easily and prune out wayward stems. This plant fruits in abundance on account of its vigorous growth – be sure to keep it well-trained so it doesn’t grow out of its allotted space.
Treat like a summer-fruiting raspberry, pruning out the fruited canes in late autumn. This should leave the attractive first-year leafy stems to do their ornamental show in winter and fruit the following year.
When you receive your 1 litre pot plant water well before planting. You can plant at any time of the year- However avoid mid-summer when young plants can suffer from heat stress at planting or mid-to-late winter if the soil is frozen.
Japanese wineberry has so much ornamental and practical uses. Lots of fruit in autumn followed by gorgeous texture and red stems in winter that look beautiful when rimed in frost.
they seem to be strong healthy plants
Because its a stupid question so soon after purchasing, ask me again when they have had chance to grow and fruit! The same goes for all the other items below. This question suggests it is done by a PR person who doesn't understand what you sell.
