Joan J Raspberry Packed in 5 or 10 canes
£8.99 – £16.00
An outstanding variety, fruiting on the first years growth, heavy cropper of juicy sweet tasting berries, that are much larger than Autumn Bliss and with a superior colour and flavour. Long cropping period from July through to October, freezes exceptionally well. Spine free. Highly recommended.
Plant 45cm (18in) apart in rows 1.2m (4ft) apart.
Plant in a sheltered spot in a well-drained but moist, fertile soil in full sun or light shade.
Soak the roots before planting. Mix an organic soil improver and general fertiliser with the infill soil. Water regularly until established.
Fruit is produced on the previous year’s cane. First year cut down old canes when new shoots appear. Cut older cane back to ground level after fruiting and tie in newly produced cane & remove tips.
