Product Information

Long Cane Raspberries are your opportunity to benefit from a massive breakthrough in Raspberry fruit production!

Raspberries usually produce their fruit on the previous year's growth of canes. However, they are often sold in garden centres cut back as short canes - great value, but you have to wait an extra year for fruit.

Now, with Long Canes you will get fruit in the first season, because they have not been cut back - they are harvested at about 1m or taller and will fruit this summer.

A great garden variety, not too vigorous, yet fruiting early to mid-season in July and August and producing good bright red sweet fruits. You will get around a pound of fruit or more per cane for 4-5 years. These raspberries will fruit on the full length of the canes you receive so do not prune them down when you plant them!

If space is at a premium, grow them in large pots in a wigwam form it will look great and also produce massive amounts or fruit in the minimum of space! Otherwise, plant in rows about 60cm (2ft) apart, using supporting wires for easier fruit picking. Take advantage of new Long Cane Raspberry production techniques for bigger and quicker crops. 

Supplied as Long-Canes, approx. 85-100cm tall which means you will get fruit this year!

Planting Advice for Raspberries:

  • Plant raspberries roughly 50cm apart in rows, along walls or fences or in beds where further support from posts can be used.
  • They can also be grown in large pots (40cm+ diameter) on your patio, balcony, terrace and more.
  • Select an appropriate spot for your plants, making sure that you give them enough space to grow to their full size.
  • For best results, plant in a sunny but sheltered position.
  • Soak canes in water for a couple of hours before planting to wake them up from dormancy.
  • Dig a hole with enough room for the roots to spread. If youíre planting multiple bushes, itís easiest to dig a trench.
  • Whether youíre planting bare-root or potted plants, keep the crown of the plant 1 or 2 inches above the ground - raspberries hate to be buried too deeply.
  • Fork over the bottom to loosen the soil and add some good quality fertiliser such as Blood Fish & Bone.
  • Holding the plant upright in position with one hand, slowly backfill the hole with soil, and gently shake the plant, so the soil falls back around the roots.
  • Firm in and water well.

Aftercare Advice for your raspberries:

  • A thick mulch will conserve moisture and suffocate weeds. Keep a thick layer of mulch around the plants at all times.
  • Water daily from spring until after harvest. Regular watering is better than infrequent deep soaking.
  • Remove any suckers (canes that grow well away from the rows) to prevent them taking valuable nutrients away from the main plant.
  • Cut down any raspberry canes that have already fruited in November, leaving long canes for the following year's bigger crops.
  • Summer-fruiting varieties crop in July on last year's growth
