Enjoy lots of cherry-blossom like flowers every year from this hardy soft fruit plant which produces berries similar to raspberries. Adds welcome colour to the allotment with this free-flowering shrub giving you a crop of berries in summer.
Compact in growth plant several plants in a square yard (square metre). You can fit around 4 plants in this small space. In the second year after you have planted expect berries to appear from flowers that grow from 1 year old stems.
At planting cut down canes to 2cm (1in) above ground level to encourage multiple stems to grow from the ground.
How you receive your plant
You receive our salmonberry plant as a 1.3litre pot plant with a well-establish root network within a ball of soil.
This is perfect for planting now when your plants can concentrate on putting on leaf and fruiting stem growth. The roots are ready to grow in the ground which gives your plants water and nutrients to the stems for lots of succulent fruit.
You’ll receive this plant with green stem and leaves contained in a bag. This is to keep the green parts of the plant nice and moist while transported from our nursery to your home to keep them in the best condition for you.
Can’t plant straight away?
You can keep your plants together in their plastic wrap for as long as 3-5 days so long as you make sure the root area is nice and humid and the roots feel moist.
Keep your plants in a light, cool position away from full sun like an unheated porch or greenhouse.
Look to planting in their permanent position within 5 days.
