Rubus idaeus 'Summer Lovers Early'

An aromatic summer raspberry, ideal for growing in large patio containers and harvesting from June to August. The large conical fruits are medium to dark red in colour, with a good aroma. Ideal for use in tarts, pies, crumbles and for jam making. Disease resistant and loved by pollinating insects.

Plant Care

Plant into any average garden soil, avoiding wet areas. Can be grown in patio containers. Fruits on last year's canes.

Planting Instructions

Water thoroughly, or stand pot in a container of water for half an hour before planting. Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball. Remove the pot, place the plant in the hole so that the root ball is level with the surrounding ground and refill, firming if necessary. Keep well watered in dry weather. Feed in spring with a good, general fertiliser.
