RUBUS fruticosus BLACKBERRY Waldo

An early thornless variety.  Waldo is a heavy cropper of firm, attractive fruit with a glossy appearance. The berries are extremely large and have an exceptional flavour.  Growth is compact so a good choice if space is at a premium – can even be grown self-supporting as a bush.  Ideal for planting against a wall or fence or growing in a container.  Performs best when planted in sun or partial shade.  Highly recommended.  Eventual height and spread: 1.8m (6ft).  Cropping season:  August/September.  Self fertile.

3 litre stock will be supplied pot grown where possible. 

Bare root stock is available for dispatch between late October & late March. Orders can be placed in advance at any time, just bear in mind that payment will be taken in full at time of ordering.

Planting:

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.
