(Early Season Variety)
Raspberry plants should be spaced 1m apart in fertile, well drained soil which is sheltered and sunny, although they can tolerate partial shade. Supports of post and wire may be needed and ground preparation should be done before planting takes place. They must be well watered in to encourage the canes to establish quickly. In spring, mulch around the plants with well rotted manure. Raspberry plants can be very vigorous and spread well using basal shoots which extended underground.
Flowers can be a major nectar source for honeybees and other pollinators. The fruit is harvested when it comes off easily and has turned from their green growing colour to the rich raspberry colour we all know. It is at this time that the fruits are most ripe and at their sweetest. Excess fruit can be made into raspberry jam or frozen. The plants will often yield several pounds of fruit each year.
