Product Information

Never has there been a better time to Grow Your Own and reap the benefits of producing your own fresh, healthy food. Making use of home gardens has always been a sensible thing to do, but now more than ever with genetic modification, predicted supermarket shortages and environmental damage, produce picked and eaten from your own plot has never been a better idea!

'Raspberry 'Sweet Sunshine' is a new concept raspberry variety, producing masses of short-branched canes that reach no more than 1m (3ft 3in), with the added bonus of being thornless. This thick clump of canes produces heavy crops on established plants in 2 years or so, and starts fruiting in June, so is an early starter. Fruit flavour is good, as demanded by today's consumers, making this the perfect all-rounder.

For best results, grow in a large pot about 30cm or so in diameter, allowing room for growth over many years. Picking height is at 80-100cm tall, so easy to net and easy to pick - perfect for children too - or why not make a raspberry hedge?

Supplied as an established plant in a 2L pot. Ready for picking June - August. Plant about 70cm apart.

Top Tips

  • ‘Sweet Sunshine’ fruits on last year’s stems, so cut down any raspberry canes that have already fruited in November, leaving long canes for the following year's crops.
  • New shoots will soon emerge, and next year's fruit will be produced on these one-year-old, ripened canes.

Care Information

  • If planting several, plant them about 50cm (20in) apart in rows.
  • Or grow in large pots, at least 30cm (1ft) diameter on your patio or balcony.
  • For best results, plant in a sunny but sheltered position.
  • Dig a hole roughly double the size of the roots and some good quality fertiliser such as Blood Fish & Bone.
  • Aim to plant at the same depth as in the pot.
  • Firm in and water well. Keep well-watered for the first few weeks to help plants to establish, then water regularly.
