RUBUS idaeus RASPBERRY Joan J
An outstanding primocane variety. A heavy cropper of juicy, sweet tasting berries that are significantly larger than Autumn Bliss with a brighter colour and superior flavour. Long cropping period from July through to October. Freezes exceptionally well. Spinefree. A highly recommended variety. Self fertile.
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.
