Grow Your Own Raspberry Bush

Glen Ample is a mid season variety of raspberry with large fleshy fruit of excellent flavour. The raspberry cane is upright and the yields are heavy with berries are perfect for freezing, making jams and desserts or eaten fresh.

Glen Ample is frost hardy and can grow over 6 foot. It needs only partial sunlight meaning that this is a great variety for a more shaded garden and will usually flower in May or June. The raspberry canes on this variety are spineless meaning it can be easily picked. These are also suited for container growing.

Raspberry Care
Supplied as bare root canes. Prepare the ground well before planting. Remove all weeds and dig in plenty of well-rotted manure in to the area. Plant canes 8cm (3in) deep, at 45cm (18in) intervals, carefully spreading out the roots and backfilling with soil. Subsequent rows should be 1.8m apart. Once planted, shorten the canes to about 23cm (9in). Each spring, mulch well with well-rotted manure. Plants flower on one-year-old wood, so the new canes need to be separated from fruiting ones. After cropping, cut the fruiting canes down to the ground and tie in the new ones that have grown that year.

Nutritional Information:
The berries contain high levels of Vitamin C as well as Vitamins B1, B2 & B3. They are packed full of Antioxidants, folic acid and dietary fibre.

Bought these raspberries last year and they grew amazingly well in the shadow of pine trees, tasted good and are a good size. They also spread a fair bit.

I bought a few different types of raspberries this year and have forgotten which is which but one of the beds have not sprouted at all yet while the others are clearly growing Can I presume they are not going to come or could they sprout yet?

Hi Patrick A lot of raspberries are held back at the moment due to the cold weather. Don't give up on them just yet. Cut one or two back by about 2/3 inches with a secateurs to see if there is life inside the stems. There should be. They should sprout over the next few weeks Niall Quickcrop

I planted the raspberry canes in February but they still do not have any sign of growth. Is this normal for April I would have expected some sign of growth by now am I correct? many thanks

Hi Sue To be honest mine are not showing growth yet either. It has been a bit cold. If you take a secateurs and cut the stem back about 2 inches you should see green growth in the centre. If you do then all is fine Niall Quickcrop

Hi Paddy If you only put the Raspberries and Blueberries in new soil last year there is no need to add anything to the soil until at least this winter. Maybe even not until next Spring Niall Quickcrop

I have a raised bed 12x 4 set aside for raspberries. How many canes should I put in? Is it suitable to put in glen ample and also the autumn fruiting canes together in the same bed? Also, do I put the post and wire structure just up the middle of bed for the two rows or would i need two wires for two rows? Thanks
Answered by Niall
on November 14th, 2020
Hi Elizabeth Two wires for the two rows or you can build wire down each side and then run string across the centre from the wires. No problem mixing the different varieties in the same bed but for yourself it is best to put each variety in a cluster as this will help you know which to prune and which not to when it comes to it. In that length of bed i would put in roughly 24. 12 down each side Niall Quickcrop

Asked By John Melvin

Just wondering when planting raspberry or similar fruit is it better to have them in a north south orientation or east west. Also how many canes would you recommend planting and would it be okay to have a number of different varieties in the same past and wire drill. Best regards John
Answered by Andrew
on January 20th, 2017
Hi John. To be honest if the location is good and open then it doesn't matter to much as they will get plenty of sun. However it is is a tight spot then better to put them in an North South orientation so the sun passes over the plants equally through the day. There is no problem mixing varieties in the same plot and typically 10/12 plants is sufficient for a family of four however you can never have enough in my opinion.
