A guide to choosing the right size

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, 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.

Absolutely fantastic quality of plants were delivered. I have bought the same variety from two other suppliers and the ones from Blackmoor far surpassed the other company's plants in terms of quality and size. Very happy I ordered these from them rather than go back to the other suppliers

I may have become confused with my order, but Jon sorted me out in a friendly and efficient way. The Raspberry plants arrived 2 days later, and are now in the ground. They look green and healthy with plenty of roots and new shoots.
