Raspberries are hardy plants, capable of withstanding ice-cold temperatures. They do best in full sunlight providing you with a bountiful of tasty berries.
When it comes to the ideal soil, most types are well-suited although the soil must have good drainage in cases where clay and sand are dominant. Overly wet soil will quickly cause roots to rot and eventually the plant could die.
The plants prefer to grow in soil with a 5.5 or 6.5 pH, therefore a Raspberry Kit works wonders.
The Kit includes:
One Red Raspberry Plant
Bag of Berry Mix
Volcanic Rock Dust
Pine Bark Mulch
Use our slow-release fertiliser twice a year – once in spring and once in summer. Berry Fertiliser is an optional extra.
When planting your tree, use between 5 and 15 centimetres of mulch to give the soil a fantastic boost.
If the plant is well taken care of, it can produce delicious berries for more than 15 years. Our Raspberry plants bear fruit in Summer and Autumn, and while they need very little attention, the none fruit-bearing months are ideal times to prune the plants.
