Raspberries are a popular and easy-to-grow fruit that are perfect for any UK garden. They are a delicious summer fruit that are packed full of vitamins and antioxidants, making them a healthy and tasty snack.
The best position for raspberries is in a sunny spot with well-draining soil that is rich in organic matter. They can also be grown in containers on a patio or balcony, as long as they are regularly watered and fed.
Raspberries are best planted in the autumn or winter, although they can also be planted in the spring. This will give the plants plenty of time to establish themselves before the fruiting season. The fruiting time for raspberries is usually between June and August, depending on the variety.
Raspberry canes can grow up to 2m tall, so it’s important to give them enough space to spread out. They should be planted about 60cm apart and supported with stakes or a trellis.
To feed your raspberries, you should apply a general-purpose fertiliser in early spring before growth starts, and then again in midsummer after fruiting has finished. Regular watering is also important, especially during dry spells.
Raspberries are also susceptible to various pests and diseases, so it’s important to keep an eye out for any signs of damage or infection. Regular pruning can also help to keep the plants healthy and productive.
