How to plant and care for raspberries

How to plant and care for raspberries

Summer fruiting raspberries: 

  • If you choose early, mid-season and late varieties, you can pick from early July until early August. 
  • Summer raspberries fruit on one-year old wood, in an ideal situation the new canes would be tied into three rows of parallel galvanised wires between posts, ideally running north-south; the tallest wire should be 6ft above ground. Tying them in protects the canes from winter storms, and you may need to tie the tops of the canes along the top wire. 
  • In small gardens, where space might be limited,the wires can be fixed to posts along a sunny fence and grown behind the wires, or simply train 2-3 plants round a single post. 
  • Summer raspberries should be cut back hard after planting. As canes appear next spring, tie the strongest ones into the wires, fanning them out well. Prune out spindly canes. The following year, they will produce fruit; after fruiting cut them to the ground, and tie in the new growth.
