|How To Grow
Raspberries are a versatile fruit used to make mouthwatering jams, sauces, purees, souffles or simply eaten fresh with cream or ice-cream. They are suckering plants that grow best in cooler climates and prefer a rich, well-drained soil in a position that does not have exposure to the hot afternoon sun. When planting create a mound of 10-1Scm to assist drainage, mulch and keep well watered during growing period. Attaining a height of 150cm they should be supported with a trellis or grown up against a wall. Raspberries are produced on last season's canes which should be cut back to ground level after fruiting. Leave new growth which will bear fruit the following season .
Feed plants with a complete fertiliser as fruit is forming.
