Eventual Height – 1.5m

Supplied in a 9cm pot all year round

Soak the root-ball before planting.  Plant in a hole twice the diameter of the root-ball. Mix a general fertiliser with the infill soil.  Water regularly until established. Plant 3m (10ft) apart in rows.  Best grown against a fence or wall for support in well-drained but moist, fertile soil in full sun or partial shade.

Fruit is produced on the previous year’s stems.  Tie in the new shoot – these will flower and fruit in the second year.  Cut away the older stems and replace them with new vigorous shoots.  Cut back damaged shoots in late winter and apply a general fertiliser.
