Only 64 left
Warm-climate raspberry, unlike many varieties which prefer a cooler year-round climate. It fruits on new growth which means you won't have to wait long to enjoy those sweet juicy berries. Acid-neutral soil and lots of light for best results. If you get frost, get our Tulameen variety which is frost-hardy.
Rubus idaeus 'Heritage'APPEARANCE: Vigorous heat-tolerant disease-resistant raspberry from the USA with upright canes and abundant large red late summer berries. Primocane type which fruits on new canes.
USES: Eat berries fresh from the plant or make into desserts; the leaves can also be used to make herbal tea.
PLANTING: Plant them against a trellis or taut wires, train them up until they reach the top, then tie in new growth pointing down until you reach the bottom of the trellis. This helps increase fruit yields. Can be grown in a large pot if you have alkaline soil. Protect from frost.
CARE: Mulch and water regularly until plant becomes established and water regularly at the roots when in flower and fruit. Grow in a relatively free-draining acid to neutral soil; mulch with organic matter such as compost or bark. Cut all canes that have fruited down to ground level in early to mid autumn to allow new growth to form. TIP : Old gardeners used to pee around the bushes to help fertility and fruiting - one for the blokes, unless you are very agile.
