A guide to choosing the right size

Blackmoor Nursery is one of very few Nurseries in the UK offering gardeners the opportunity to buy Raspberry canes direct from our Nursery. 

All orders are despatched in one delivery. If your order contains both bare root and container grown plants then we can only despatch when all plants are ready. 

Any Bare Root Items - Availability means Available for supply from early November to May.

Any Container grown items - Availability means Available for supply now. 

All our Raspberry canes are ministry inspected.

Autumn fruiting varieties, i.e. Autumn Bliss, Polka and Joan J 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.

Raspberry Canes | Type Two Timer | Genus Rubus | Rubus idaeus

Summer Raspberry Sugana - A stunning new exclusive variety to Blackmoor. The major attraction to this variety is it produces two harvests in the same year. It will crop on the new season’s growth August-October, but unlike other varieties, you should leave these stems to re-crop the following June, whilst training the new stems in for the following autumn’s crop. Stunning large fruits and strong growth. This variety is also tolerant to phytophthora. 

This variety will set a small crop on the 1 year old cane around early to mid - September. It is just a light crop un like the other Autumn fruiting varieties.

The main crop is carried on the 2nd year cane and these fruits are ready mid July.
