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 Summer Fruiting | Award of Garden Merit | Genus Rubus idaeus Glen Ample | Glen Ample Raspberry Canes For Sale | Buy Online

Summer Raspberry Glen Ample Long Canes (125- 150cm) for sale - Supplied as canes 125-150cm long (only sold in 10's). Exceptionally high yields of very large fruit. Canes are spine free upright with strong vigour. Fruits on the previous year's cane which must be tied up to support the crop. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM). 

Glen Ample: Picking time July.

Unlike regular Canes, long cane plants do not need to be cut back after planting.  The canes should be left intact as supplied. They will then develop fruit-bearing side shoots at the top of each cane which will flower and produce fruit for picking in the first season after planting at the same time as new growth (next year's fruiting wood) is thrown up from the root system. In following summers, treat as regular summer fruiting canes.

Due to the size of the canes they have to be despatched via a courier and there is a £9.95 delivery charge to mainland UK

I live 16 miles from Glen Ample itself, so why send 450 miles to Hampshire for replacement raspberry canes? Because when they come from Blackmoor they are well grown, well packed and in perfect condition for planting out. I could not be happier with their product and service.
