How to Grow Raspberries

Raspberries are a great fruit to eat straight from the plant, for freezing and for making into jams and preserves.

This popular fruit can be divided into 2 categories: Summer Fruiting and Autumn Fruiting. Both need good, fertile, weed-free soil with good drainage. Autumn fruiting types will produce a small crop in the same year of planting, whilst summer fruiting types will not crop until the following year (i.e. 18 months after planting), so choose your varieties carefully to have continuation of crop.

As they are often very expensive in the shops, growing your own is also a cost effective way to enjoy this fruit.
