How To Grow
While Tayberries will fruit even in relatively poor soil, providing regular feed can be beneficial for growth and harvest. Add rotted garden compost or organic fertilizer around the base of your bushes as fruits start to form. Tayberry fruit tend to grow on second-year canes. However, by the end of the first year you’ll be seeing additional canes growing up.
Prune your Tayberry each Autumn or Winter. Cut back the canes that have fruited this year to about 5cm above ground level, while leaving this year’s new shoots to grow out and produce fruit the following year. By careful pruning you’ll not only be able to keep your bush open, making harvesting easier, but also maximise the crops.
Cover roots 50cm apart in full sun.
Feed plants with a complete fertilizer as fruit is forming.
