Talkback: How to grow autumn-fruiting raspberries

Posted: 10/02/2014 at 22:27

I purchased 5 raspberry plants at weekend as I'm going to give them a go (not grown them before). They are 'Raspberry Malling Delight' - The canes are about 2' tall . Do I just plant them as they are without pruning and will I get fruit from them this year. Can anyone help plse.

I'm in the North West (Cheshire) and quite high above sea level.  Although we didn't get any flooding in the area everywhere was quite saturated and the wind has taken its toll.

I have a wooden cold frame which has been lifted up twice by the wind and twisted causing damage to the frame.  Has anybody any suggestions on how I could secure this to the ground ?.  There is no flooring on the bottom of the frame.  I have tried putting stones on the selves to help weigh it down but we have had strong winds!

I have been looking for somewhere to buy either seeds or plugs of this plant - strobilanthes dyeriana, with no success.

Has anyone seen this for saleanywhere recently?

Many thanks, Debbie

I was so excited when I collected a  2nd hand octagonal greenhous from an older lady who could no longer look after it.  My husband and I gently took it all apart to transport home but also noticed how a lot of wood will need replacing.  Does anybody know a suppliers where I can purchase spare parts - wood and screws.


Thank you debbie
