Grow 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 soil. The stems of summer fruiting raspberries will require support. Before planting, prepare a framework of wires stretched horizontally between two sturdy 1.8m (6') posts. Autumn fruiting varieties will not require supports.Plant raspberry canes in a row against the wire supports, allowing a distance of 60cm (24") between plants. Water well. Canes should be pruned to 15cm (6") above ground level immediately after planting to encourage more shoots to be produced.

Water well for the first year until plants are fully established. Loosely tie the stems of summer fruiting raspberries 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. 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.


Summer fruiting: 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.

Autumn fruiting: Prune all raspberry canes to ground level each February.

  1. Success!

    By Melissa Buzzard 29-05-2012

    I have to admit I was dubious when planting these....They just looked like a bunch of twigs upon delivery, and I never thought anything would come of them. This was my first time planting raspberries. Well I have to say, ALL 18 canes have sprouted leaves, are growing well, with some even developing buds. Fingers crossed I will still be giving them a 5-star when it is harvest time! :)

  2. Love Raspberries! These are Great! ;0)

  3. Non-fruiting raspberry canes

    By Jo Thompson 18-07-2011

    My early and mid raspberries did absolutely nothing. They are still just sticks in the ground. My autumn fruiting raspberries started fruiting in July!!!
