Rubus idaeus 'Tulameen'
In NT, TAS, WA? We can't ship this product to you for biosecurity reasons. Here’s why
APPEARANCE: Late-season frost-hardy raspberry with upright, thornless canes and abundant large red summer berries renowned for their flavour. Fruits from second year; long season of harvest once established.
USE FOR: Eat berries fresh from the plant or make into desserts; the leaves can also be used to make herbal tea.
CLIMATE : Unbelievably frost hardy. Fruits better in cooler climates with regular rainfall
PLANTING: Grow in a relatively free-draining acid to neutral soil; mulch with organic matter such as compost or bark. 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 and takes up less room than training horizontally. Can be grown in a large pot, if you have alkaline soil in your garden.
CARE: Mulch and water regularly until plant becomes established and water regularly at the roots when in flower and fruit. 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.
HEIGHT & WIDTH:1.5 m H x 1.5 m W.
YOUR PLANTS : These are tubestock plants, healthy young plants with new roots that will establish quickly in your garden. The pot size is 80mm high and 42 mm wide.
