Tayberries start flowering in late summer and can tolerate frost but they do not do well in heavy frost areas.

They grow very well in a pot of about 40-50cm wide and deep, but will require a trellis for the vines to grow up. It is a quick grower and prolific fruiter. They do require a slightly acidic soil, so add a bag of our berry mix into a good organic potting soil, or compost if planting in the ground. A bag of acid compost will also do the job.

Tayberry plants as with most berry or fruit trees do best in full sun but can tolerate partial shade.

Mulching with pine bark or pine needles will assist in maintaining moisture, soil acidity and prevent weed growth. As the mulch decomposes add another thick layer around the soil avoiding the stem of the plant.

After your Tayberry has fruited, heavy pruning is not at all necessary you cut the dead canes right back to allow new growth and great tasting fruit the next season.
