    This new raspberry is can be planted out in the border or kitchen garden, but as it has such a compact habit and virtually thornless stems, it is absolutely perfect for pots and containers. Just place it in a sunny spot, and given the right conditions, you will be picking raspberries in the first year after planting.

  • Garden care: Prepare the planting area well, removing all perennial weeds and adding plenty of well-rotted garden compost or manure. Plant at 45cm (18in) intervals, with 1.8m between each row. Normally after these autumn fruiting raspberries have been growing for one year, all the canes should be cut back to just above ground level each February. However there is an alternative way of pruning that brings the harvesting season well into summer, thereby increasing the months of berries. At the end of autumn, instead of cutting all the canes to the ground, only prune out the canes which fruited. These will grow on next year, fruiting much earlier than ususal giving you a summer crop. Next year's spring shoots will emerge as normal to give you your autumn crop of raspberries.As the canes emerge they can be tied onto their supports as normal.
