Rubus idaeus 'Summer Lovers Garden Red'

An autumn raspberry, light red in colour, ideal to harvest from August onwards. This plant has large, very regular, conical fruits, ideal for putting in tarts, pies, crumbles and for use in jam making as they have an excellent flavour.

Plant Care

Plant into any average garden soil, avoiding wet areas. Can be grown in patio containers. Prune canes back to ground level every year after fruiting.

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.
