Raspberries when do they start getting leaves

Posted: 02/04/2017 at 19:12

I'd wait a while - if you only planted them this winter they'll be getting their roots established first - then they'll begin to throw up some new shoots. 

You should have cut any old canes down to ground level in February - if that hasn't been done I'd do it now, and give them some fish, blood and bone and an organic mulch. 

If the soil is dry (it's been a dry spring)  a couple of buckets full of water won't go amiss.

I just use a Dutch hoe - I've been hoeing all my beds today removing hundreds of tiny ash seedlings. 

Anyone up for a little experiment? Could be fun?

Hello folks   I'm completely kn*ckered ........ splitting perennials, digging up and shifting stuff,

Lucky you 

If you plant it in the garden, remember to restrict its roots.

That's  not Purpura plena elegans  - it looks like a C. alpina, possibly Francis Rivis (can't see the flower centre but it's that colour). 

I love C. alpinas and have several......but I also love Purpurea plena elegans and I have that also.
