Long established early variety that is very vigorous and reliable. Ideal for heavy cropping or for a protective screen. The large berries are sweet and juicy and are superb for freezing and all other purposes. Bedford Giant is not fussy and crops well under all conditions giving an exceptional yield of quality fruit. Will tolerate shade and ground that drains poorly. The bright black fruits are round and hang in large clusters for easy picking. Hardy but can be vulnerable to hard frosts on very exposed sites. Best suited to larger gardens and planted up against a wall or fence. Eventual height: 2.2m (7ft). Eventual spread: 1.2m (4ft). Cropping season: end of July/August. Self fertile. 

This product is supplied in a 3L pot but is not necessarily pot-grown. 

Plant 3m (10ft) apart in rows. 

Best grown against a fence or wall for support in well-drained but moist, fertile soil in full sun or partial shade. 

Soak the root-ball before planting.  Plant in a hole twice the diameter of the root-ball or pot.  Mix an organic soil improver and general fertiliser with the infill soil.  Water regularly until established. 

After Care:
Fruit is produced on the previous year's stems.  Tie in the new shoot - these will flower and fruit in the second year.  Cut away the older stems and replace them with new vigorous shoots.  Cut back damaged shoots in late winter and apply a general fertiliser.
