Raspberry is a popular easy to grow deciduous fruit with arching canes covered with tiny thorns. Bright green foliage over the spring and summer months and then delicious fruit is produced on the canes during the warmer months of the year.
Raspberries will grow in full sun to partial shade in moist well drained soils. Raspberries can get to 2 metres tall by 2 metres wide if allowed. Protect Raspberries from any hot dry winds, water regularly during the summer months and Remove any old canes during the winter months. Always good practice to tie up and support any loose canes to keep them tidy and compact. I dont allow my Raspberries to get to 2 metres tall, in most cases, we keep them at 1 metre tall. My kids love picking the fruits…. im patient and wait for the fruits to fully ripen, but sadly, between 2 hungry fruit bats ( my children) and the native bird population, i often miss out.
Raspberries are great for having in the garden, there is nothing better than growing your own food, picking it and eating it fresh off the bush and tasty little treats whilst you work in the garden, but if you have an abundance of raspberries, which eventually you will…. unless my kids are nearby, then raspberries are also great for making jams, drinks, smoothies, desserts and you can freeze them for a later date
