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.

As a new customer, I ordered Glen Ample raspberry canes online last Sunday and they were delivered today (Thursday). They look to be good quality and, if they survive and produce fruit in time, I shall be a very content.

Although one of the canes did not thrive, the other four grew well and produced a long run of large, juicy well-formed raspberries. A great choice.

19 Mar 23 | Alan Ritchie

Quick delivery, received order five days after placing my order. Easy to order plants on website. Raspberry canes were well packed and canes had good roots.

Canes arrived in excellent condition, uniform with good moist root systems, I am very impressed. The Blackmoor team also took the trouble to post the grafting tape I ordered ahead of the raspberries for which I am most grateful.

7 Mar 21 | Denise Stevens

Bought the long cane, bare root. Strong, substantial canes, full of buds waiting to burst. Looking forward to these raspberries in the Summer as growing well. Excellent service.

12 Jan 20 | Derek

Canes were a little flimsier than I was expecting but after 2 years they have developed well and fruited superbly in their second year. Good firm berries with great flavour.

I bought these at the start of the year. They were well packed and arrived in a timely manner. I had to pot them temporarily before planting out in the April - they didn't like the move at all! However initially they had started very well. The few that did establish did ok although didn't produce anything this year - hopefully next year will be better.

I purchased 10 glen Ample canes in early 2019. All 10 were in superb condition each having a very large root ball. They have all grown well and provided a good supply of large berries this year I am impressed with the quality of the plants and the after sales service from Blackmoor and throughly reccomed them.

The plants arrived well packaged and healthy with full instructions and I would highly recommend Blackmoor Nurseries. Mr. Lowe

I ordered Glen Ample raspberry canes from you the other day. I'm pleased to say that they arrived in an exceptionally short time, were of excellent quality, and at a competitive price. They have been planted and I'm sure will be as productive in my new garden as this variety was in the garden I left behind in Wiltshire. Thanks again for an excellent service

Raspberry Glen Ample Guide.

Planting Bare Root Raspberry canes: 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 ground level immediately after planting. In the spring the new shoots will appear from beneath the soil. The young canes are then tied into a wire fence system for cropping the following season.

Planting Container Raspberries: 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. Support the canes with a post and wire system or a bamboo cane. Container grown canes do not need pruning straight after planting.

Pruning Summer Fruiting Glen Ample Raspberries: Cut back all canes that have fruited to ground level after harvesting. Do not leave old stubs. Select the strongest young canes, around six to eight per plant; tie them in 8-10cm (3-4in) apart along the wire supports Remove the remaining young stems to ground level.
