All our Raspberry canes are ministry inspected.

Autumn fruiting varieties, i.e. Autumn Bliss, Polka, Joan J and Little Red Princess are completely cut to ground level during the winter.

Summer fruiting varieties, These fruit on the second year cane (normally darker than the one year cane)The second year cane is pruned back down to soil level in the winter after they have fruited leaving the one year old cane for next summers crop.


Plant the canes about 18” (45 cm) apart with 6 ft (1.8 m) between the rows. Avoid planting the young canes too deeply, a covering of 3” (7.5 cms) over the roots is ample. Cut the canes down to 2” (5 cms) above the soil immediately after planting (bare root canes only, Do not cut down the 1 litre potted canes). In the spring when the new shoots appear from beneath the soil the 2” stub should be cut away. The young canes are tied into a wire fence system for cropping the following season. Subsequently all canes which have fruited are cut out at ground level immediately after fruiting.

Joan J (Autumn Fruiting)

Raspberry Canes | Type Autumn Fruiting | Award of Garden Merit | Genus Rubus | idaeus

Autum Raspberry Joan J - A high yielding, large fruited primocane selection from Medway Fruits. It is an early season selection, commencing picking at end July/early August, similar to Autumn Bliss, and cropping for a seven-week season.

The variety crops heavily in the first half of its fruiting period. The berries are 30% larger than Autumn Bliss and are both brighter and firmer.

Flavour is superb. Fruit weights are typically 6 grams. The fruit freezes exceptionally well without any increase in acidity that occurs with most other varieties. With spine free canes this makes this new autumn fruiting variety second to none for picking and eating.

Just a thank you for my bare rooted Raspberries I have just received. They look very strong plant with a mass of healthy roots and have arrived well packaged and in perfect condition with the root ball still damp. I am pleasantly surprised as to the quality. They are far superior to other well known Nurseries I have ordered from in the past. I will certainly recommend your company to anyone who is in need of good quality plants and look forward to having an abundance of lovely fruit in the years to come. Well done for keeping me informed about my order and delivery time. You are an excellent ***** 5 Star company
