    ‘Tadmor’ is a late fruiting summer raspberry that bridges the gap between summer and autumn crops. As a floricane raspberry, it will produce a high yield of firm, bright red berries that will be ready to harvest from mid-July to late summer. Large, delicious raspberries from mid-to-late summer until the first frosts; the canes require little support

  • Garden care:Supplied as bare root canes.Find a sunny spot and prepare a bed by clearing it of weeds and digging in lots of composted manure. The canes will need to be tied onto a sturdy support, so if you have the space, hammer in two robust tree stakes about 3m apart and string two or three heavy-gauge wires between them. Dig a wide, shallow trench, sprinkle with bonemeal and plant the canes at 45cm intervals, (subsequent rows should be 1.8m apart), carefully spreading out the roots and back-filling with soil. You should be able to see the old soil mark on the stems, so aim to replant the same depth. Don't cut the canes back now as it is these canes that should produce fruit the following year. As the new canes emerge, they can be tied onto their support as they grow. Feed during the growing season with a general purpose fertiliser and water regularly during the summer. You may need to protect the ripening fruit from being eaten by birds. In the autumn cut all the fruiting canes to ground level after harvesting. Select six to eight of the stongest canes from each plant to tie in on to the wires, 8 –10cm (3–4in) apart to allow the canes light and good air circulation. Cut the remaining young canes to the ground . These raspberries will often produce fruit in their first year.
