Raspberry 'Glen Ample' (Summer fruiting)

Rubus idaeus

Hardy Shrub

Summer Fruiting. An exceptional, high-yielding, mid season variety that produces a heavy crop between late June and late July. Just five of the large, deep red, berries can weigh as much as 30gm (1oz)! The tasty fruit holds well without spoiling and the spine free canes make easy picking. The large, succulent berries are excellent eaten fresh or from frozen.
All of our raspberries have been inspected by the Ministry of Agriculture for pests and diseases and certified. The bare root plants are hand graded and carefully selected before packing. Height: 150cm (59”). Spread: 50cm (20”).


Estimated time to cropping once planted: 16-20 months.
Estimated time to best yields: 28-32 months.

Plant in rows 38cm (15in) apart, leaving 1.8m (6ft) between. Choose a well drained, sunny or semi-shaded spot, dig in plenty of well-rotted compost or manure in the autumn. Create a frame work of posts and wires for easy training.

Water summer fruiting raspberries well for the first year until plants are fully established. Loosely tie the stems in to their support wires as they grow. When berries begin to develop, place a net over the plants to protect the crop from birds. In autumn, prune the canes which have fruited over summer to ground level. Canes which have not fruited should be 'tied in' to their supports. Aim to have 6 to 8 fruiting canes per plant. Apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the canes in spring. This will help to retain moisture throughout the summer.
