Tayberry with soils

R295.00

The tayberry is a cross between the red raspberry and blackberry (Rubus fruiticosus x R. idaeus) and has the good qualities of both the original plants. These qualities include the large size and firmness of the blackberry and the great taste and colour of the raspberry. It also looks like the blackberry, is a very vigorous growing shrub and is self-pollinating.

The ultimate soil combination for your Tayberry Plant

Berry Mix

Volcanic Rock Dust

Pine Bark Mulch

Submerge the pot in water for 10 minutes before transplanting.

Tayberry Plants require well-draining, loamy, slightly acidic soil with a pH of 6.0-6.8. Well-decomposed compost can be mixed in with the soil before planting.

One bag of Berry Mix is added to the soil, with a bag of Volcanic Rock Dust containing organic minerals and trace elements to boost soil health and increase important micro-organisms essential for healthy soil.

Dig a 50cm x 50cm deep hole and add a bag of compost or acid compost. Mix the berry mix and volcanic rock dust into the top section of this soil. Make a little hole and plant, ensuring you don’t add the soil higher than where the soil is in the bag. Then add the pine bark mulch on top, keeping it away from the plant’s stem. Place the plant directly into the soil mixture and cover it with pine bark mulch.

Fertilise your plant with one teaspoon of our slow-release berry fertiliser every 4-5 months.
