I splashed out on some brand new rasberry canes this week! My last raspberry patch was just getting less productive every year, so after 6 years I decided to dig them all up and start again. A lovely selection of canes recommended by the RHS are Tulameen
- a large Summer fruiting variety with the most amazing taste. Tadmor
, an Autumn fruiting variety. Erica
is an interesting new variety, says it is mainly Autumn fruiting, but if you leave the canes till the following Spring they will fruit on those as well! I will have to figure out when to prune them, but they sound interesting.
I thought I would try some mycorhizal fungi
to help the root systems develop. A beneficial fungi for the soil which enables excellent root development and uptake of nutrients from the soil.
So a spoonful in each planting hole making sure it comes into direct contact with the roots. Has anyone used this? Does it work?
So an extra helping of compost, well rotted manure and a good watering in and these should be happy.
