Grow raspberry plants in a sunny position in any well drained soil. Prior to planting, incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost into the planting hole. Plant raspberry canes 60cm (24") apart at the same soil level as they were planted at the nursery. This is indicated by the soil mark on the stem. Firm in and water well. Canes should be pruned to 30cm (12") immediately following planting to encourage more shoots to be produced. Autumn fruiting varieties do require supports for their stems. They can also be grown in large containers of soil based compost such as John Innes no.3.
Water well for the first year until plants are fully established. When berries begin to develop, place a net over the plants to protect your crop from greedy birds! Prune raspberry canes to ground level in February and apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the canes. This will help to retain moisture throughout the summer.
