MORE INFORMATION

Traditionally, raspberries are large, thorny bushes that take up a lot of space in the garden, but ‘Sweet Sunshine’ has turned that on its head.

This exceptional raspberry will produce lots of thornless, short-branched canes that grow to no more than 1 m (3 ft). This thick clump of canes produces heavy crops on established plants, and it’s an early cropper, starting to fruit in June. The fruit is deliciously plump and juicy and absolutely packed with flavour. Pluck them straight from the bush for a tasty snack or add them to desserts or make jam. A real taste of summer from your very own patio!

‘Sweet Sunshine’ is a floricane variety, meaning that is bears fruit on year old canes. They’re easy to grow. In November, all you need to do it cut back any canes that have fruited that year, leaving the remaining stems to fruit the following year. For best results, grow in a large pot at least 30 cm (1 ft) in diameter, allowing room for growth in a sunny position for the best tasting fruit.

Supplied as 3 established plants in 9cm pots, ready for planting and growing to a height of 1 m (3 ft) and spread of 50 cm (20 in).

CARE INFORMATION

Top Tips

  • ‘Sweet Sunshine’ fruits on last year’s stems, so cut down any raspberry canes that have already fruited in November, leaving long canes for the following year's crops.
  • New shoots will soon emerge, and next year's fruit will be produced on these one-year-old, ripened canes.

Care Guide

  • If planting several, plant them about 50 cm (20 in) apart in rows
  • Or grow in large pots, at least 30 cm (1 ft) diameter on your patio or balcony.
  • For best results, plant in a sunny but sheltered position.
  • Dig a hole roughly double the size of the roots and some good quality fertiliser such as Blood Fish & Bone.
  • Aim to plant at the same depth as in the pot.
  • Firm in and water well. Keep well-watered for the first few weeks to help plants to establish, then water regularly.
