Grow autumn fruiting raspberry plants in a sunny position in any well drained soil. Prior to planting, incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost into the planting hole. Plant raspberry canes in rows allowing a distance of 60cm (24") between plants. Firm in and water well. Canes should be pruned to 30cm (12") immediately following planting to encourage more shoots to be produced. Autumn fruiting varieties do not require supports for their stems. They can also be grown in large containers of soil based compost such as John Innes no.3.
Water well for the first year until plants are fully established. When berries begin to develop, place a net over the plants to protect the crop from birds. Prune raspberry canes to ground level each February and apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the canes. This will help to retain moisture throughout the summer.

Got them in late autumn 2010 and they spent the winter in the garage, with roots wrapped in the original package -- not a very good idea, really. Amazingly, all had sprouted once being planted in March next year and I have even got a small crop. This year they expanded considerably -- looking forward for a decent yield.
Delicious Yellow Raspberries
By Gillian WILMOT 26-08-2011
I have had yellow raspberries in my garden for a few years now. Having thought I had bought Red Raspberries I was surprised at the colour but on trying them I was delighted at the wonderful taste. In my small garden they grow well even in shade. They do need to be eaten as soon as you pick them but that isn't too much of a problem at home and the grandchildren love picking them and eating them. They have caused much discussion among friends and family over the years so they might all believe me now when they see them in the shops. They do grow in to nice sturdy plants so easy to look after.
Lovely sweet fruit
By M Osmond 14-06-2011
This is our favourite raspberry. The fruit is very sweet, without any sharpness. It's quite soft and doesn't keep for long once picked.
Although it's an autumn fruiting variety that fruits on the new canes, we leave the canes to fruit a second time in June-July, getting two lovely crops each year.
