Rubus ursinus x idaeus - Boysenberry

DESCRIPTION: A cross between blackberry, loganberry, dewberry and raspberry. Big juicy dark fruits, very hard to find in the shops because they don't travel distances well - so ideal for home growing and eating!
USES: Excellent fruit for jams and pies, as well as eating fresh. Canes will fruit from the second year onwards.
PLANTING: Frost-hardy, boysenberries like a cooler climate ideal for the southern states and hinterlands - mild winters, warm summers, plenty of sunlight and regular rainfall. Canes are lax, vigorous and trailing so training them up a trellis or along wires makes for tidier plants and easier picking.
CARE: Mulch and water regularly until plant becomes established. Feed with a controlled release yearly during spring and follow up with liquid fertiliser monthly during Summer. Provide extra water during dry periods - water into the soil, not over the plant, to avoid fungal disease. Cut back any fruiting canes in Autumn-Winter after fruiting, to keep plant compact and encourage further fruit.
HEIGHT & WIDTH: 2-3m H x 2m W.
PLEASE NOTE: These plants are tubestock plants with young healthy roots that will establish quickly in your garden. The pot size is 42 mm wide and 80 mm high.
