    I bought Joan J from QVC last year and they sold Polka this. The gardener said for both varieties to cut them back to about 6 inches every February.
    For the Joan J we had quite a lot of fruit and was very pleased with them.
    The QVC bod reckoned 1 pound fruit from each plant in the first year. I don't know if we got that much as most of the berries didn't go any further than from plant straight to mouth.

    I will be interested to see how the Polka come along as I am thinking of buying some next year.
