Product Information

The term 'fruits of your labour' has never been more appropriate than with these delicious 'Summer Lovers' raspberries. Is there anything more enjoyable than sitting on your patio on a summers day and eating plump and juicy purple raspberries straight from the plant?

'Summer Lovers' is classed as an autumn-fruiting raspberry, however once established it will start to bear fruit in the summer from the middle of July - 3 weeks before 'Autumn Bliss'.

In addition, and as a contrast to the classic summer raspberries, this one is a primocane variety bearing fruit on new wood therefore meaning you will get fruit in the very first year no need to wait a year for crops! Easy to maintain, it requires just a little prune to simply remove old canes once they are older than 18 months and that is it.

A breakthrough in raspberry breeding, 'Summer Lovers Garden Purple' beats other established varieties in fruiting time, exceeding the current August crop of the earliest autumn berries. In fact, this variety has made the term 'autumn fruiting' obsolete as it matures in the middle of summer!

Easy to grow and look after, this raspberry plant can be grown and picked without problem in small spaces, in the garden, on a balcony or terrace, as they reach less than a metre.

Supplied as an established plant in a 9cm pot, ready for planting.

Top Tips

When planting, add mycorrhizal fungi to the planting hole to encourage improved root establishment and better crops.

Care Information

  • Place in full sun as the plants do much better in bright light.


  • Cut back old canes in February/March to approx. 5cm; this creates space for the emergence of new canes.
  • If planting in a container, use a pot with good drainage and use a potting medium that is specifically for container plants.
  • Your raspberry will be fine in a 5L pot for 1year, but after that, we recommend a 10L pot to allow the canes to spread.
