Organic raspberries

A fan of raspberries? Then these large raspberries 'Malling Promise' (Rubus ideaus) are ideal! The aromatic raspberries are organically grown. Fresh from your own soil. Butterflies and bees also adore this plant! The perennial fruit bush blossoms in the spring, with small pink flowers. A crop will be ready to harvest from summer onwards in the second year after planting.
Raspberries require support while growing. Be sure to secure the vines to a climbing base or woven structure. Sufficient light is needed to ensure good growth. For this reason, the fruit bush should be planted in full sun. Raspberries thrive in well-drained garden soil. It's best to give the tree extra water during dry spells.
The plant is grown organically. In other words, no chemical pesticides have been used to grow the plant. For a healthy garden!

Planting

Make sure the raspberry (Rubus idaeus) root ball is soaked well prior to planting - soak it in a bucket of lukewarm water. Dig a wide hole and loosen the soil thoroughly with a fork. Plant your raspberry bush at the right depth - the top of the root ball should come to just below soil level. Fill the hole with soil, heel well in and water immediately. Raspberry bushes will thrive in good, permeable garden soil. Do plant in full sun at approx. 35 cm apart.
If planting in rows, place your stakes at the end of the rows first. Keep the rows about 125-150 cm apart.
 
 
 

There are 2 types of raspberry

There are 2 types of raspberry:
  1. Summer raspberries. These ripen in the summer and then stop. They are usually ripe in July and August.
  2. Autumn raspberries. These raspberries start to flower a little later but can bear fruit from summer into October. These are called perpetuals.
The fruit is ripe for picking when it comes away in your hand. In a cool summer, they can take a little longer to ripen. Mulch your raspberry bushes with a layer of compost in the winter.
The harvest yield doesn't really differ per type but the full harvest of summer raspberries is over in 2 months and with autumn raspberries it can last up to 4 months.
 

Care

Raspberry bushes grow long stems that can be intertwined with fencing, or tied into climbing frames. Keep 6-8 stems per metre to tie in. Keep the bed free of weeds to allow the plants to grow perfectly.
Feed your raspberry bushes with fruit fertiliser every 3 weeks when in the growing season.
Water extra in times of drought to help the fruits to form. Don't wet the plants, just allow water to run over the soil at the base of the bush. This will help to avoid fungal infections on the fruit.

Pruning raspberries

Summer fruiting raspberries develop on old wood. They should then be pruned hard back to just above ground level - just as soon as all fruit has been picked. Preferably in early autumn. These plants will then immediately shoot before the winter and you can tie in the new shoots before it gets too cold. They will then flower next spring and fruit in the summer.
Autumn fruiting raspberries bear fruit on this year's wood. They too should be cut hard back to just above ground level, only then in the winter. February is best. Then you'll see new shoots again in March that can be tied in around April. They will all then fruit at the end of summer.

Extra

Rubus idaeus is a very healthy, abundantly fruiting bush. The raspberry blossom appears in the spring, followed by loads of delicious fruit. Raspberries are delightfully sweet and juicy. Eat them fresh in the hand or made delicious jams.
