Product Information

New to us for 2019, this completely thornless and vigorous golden autumn raspberry has been bred in the UK by the world-famous East Malling Research facility.

Primocane raspberries are the big gardeners' breakthrough - they produce fruit on NEW stems, so you get fruit in the same year as you plant them, rather than wait a year for old-fashioned types.

In addition, you can increase cropping by tip pruning existing canes which then develop side shoots for a truly phenomenal harvest of raspberries.

Easy to grow, upright and robust, the canes are completely thornless and can be grown in a large container using bamboo for support so you don't even need a garden, and they're fully hardy and easy to keep as well, just cut back old, fruited canes to the ground in spring.

The very large, firm, conical fruit have a beautiful, apricot colour and a fabulous, gourmet flavour which develops as the berries ripen, so wait until the fruits turn from yellow to apricot before picking.

Supplied as an established plant in a 12cm pot ready for immediate planting, plants reach approx. 2m tall and 60cm wide and you can expect your first fruits from the middle of August through September.

Top Tips

  • To increase your crop, in February, select up to 6-8 of the strongest canes and prune off the upper fruited part to leave canes around 1m (3ft) high. Prune the rest of the canes to ground level.
  • Canes treated in this way with the half prune should be cut out at ground level immediately after they finished fruiting the following summer. You'll get early fruit from the tipped canes and later berries from the new canes which emerge.

Care Information

  • Plant 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.
  • Dig a hole at least an inch longer than the length of your plants (including roots) and roughly double the width to ensure space for the roots.
  • Fork over the bottom to loosen the soil and add some good quality fertiliser such as Blood Fish & Bone.
  • Aim to plant at the same depth as the soil mark on the stems.
  • 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. Keep well-watered for the first 8 weeks to help plants to establish, then water regularly.
