How to grow raspberries
Plant raspberry canes (30cm tall woody stems). Space canes 40cm apart, new canes will form an unbroken row over time. Allow 150cm between rows.
Choose well-drained soil in a sunny, sheltered site.
Water and mulch raspberries. Tie new canes to horizontal wires.
Harvesting and using raspberries
Pick raspberries when they are fully coloured. Cut 'fruited canes' to soil level. Leave 'non-fruiting' cans on summer raspberries (ie the current season's growth) to fruit next year.
Tips on growing raspberries
Raspberries can either be summer fruiting, or autumn fruiting. Summer fruiting raspberries produce fruit on growth from the year before; autumn raspberries produce fruit on the current season's growth.
