RUBUS idaeus RASPBERRY All Gold
A holder of the RHS ‘Award of Garden Merit’, this vigorous autumn fruiting cultivar is a primocane variety producing fruit on the first years growth. All Gold has a similar growth habit and cropping potential to Autumn Bliss but the fruit is a very distinctive rich gold colour with a taste that is sweeter and superior to Bliss. The large yellow berries are excellent eaten fresh but are also used to make delicious wine. An excellent variety for growing in pots/containers where the long canes can be trained up an obelisk or bamboo cane wigwam. Recommended as an excellent attractant and nectar source for bees and other beneficial insects. Cropping season: late August-mid October. Self fertile.
Pot grown plant supplied all year round in a 2L pot.
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.
Plant in a sheltered spot in a well-drained but moist, fertile soil in full sun or light 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. Plant 45cm (18in) apart in rows 1.2m (4ft) apart.
Fruit is produced on the current seasons cane. Cut all cane to ground level in the winter. Keep rows 60cm (2ft) wide by removing unwanted cane in the Spring.
