Quick and simple to establish with fruit February to April. There will be even more sweet, fragrant berries for harvest in autumn.
Raspberry ‘Autumn Bliss’ is a great variety for beginners. It is a Primocane variety, which means the canes will grow and fruit in the same season. This makes them really easy. Once you have picked the last of the fruit, simply cut the lot down and next year the new canes will grow, bearing more delicious berries. The longer they have to establish their roots the better your harvest will be.
An added benefit of Raspberry ‘Autumn Bliss’ is that the canes are quite short, so you can just about get away without providing a growing trellis. If you do this, you will need to choose a sheltered location.
Raspberry ‘Autumn Bliss’ has exemplary disease resistance and is a vigorous grower.
Raspberries grow well in cool climates and are pretty easy care and the plants produce reliably for many years.
Plant Raspberries in full sun. A humus rich, well drained soil is ideal. Space 150-180cm apart. Plant the cane quite shallow, around 10cm deep. Water in and keep moist when in flower and fruit. Add some mulch to help with water retention and weed reduction.
