Nothing really tricky Fairygirl but when in pots you should change the soil every spring and you must be careful not to damage the roots when doing it. We have them in pots so that we can bring them in over the winter as they are tender and make beautiful indoor plants too. Also, although, heavily improved our underlying soil is clay and they don't like soggy feet!

Many thanks. Back home from working in Helsinki tomorrow so shall use that as a starting point for closer investigation. I was very doubtful about them being raspberries when my friend brought them to me as I already grow Tayberry, Loganberry and thornless blackberry and there was no similarity!! Looks like a bumper crop this year too if things continue well. Hope I'm off shift in the UK when they ripen - if not I'm sure wife and daughter will tell me how nice they were!!

Hi folks,

any one know what this is? My friend brought some round that had started growing in one of her raised beds and told me she thought they were raspberry plants from her neighbours garden but I have never seen raspberry plants with leaves shaped like that. Any ideas?! Cheers.

Hi Busy-Lizzie I'm viewing this on my iPhone today and if I give a long tap on your photos (not a quick tap which just enlarges the page or a hold down which gives you the option to "save the image" etc) then it enlarges the photo by opening it in another browser page. Very lovely they are too!! I'm after a clematis like that to grow through a lilac tree but I want one that flowers later so that once the lilac had finished flowering the clematis fills it with colour again. I think a white lilac would look great with a contrasting dark clematis like yours.
