    They're supposed to be roughty tufty plant bred in Scotland Andrew! I guess they will be a bit before they show. Mine hasn't yet, mind you it's been in a pot for 2 years it is a v.big pot though

    Going back to the point everyone's making about their raspberries not yet appearing above ground... I can't remember when mine appeared last year, but I know it certainly wasn't yby this time in the year.

    I remember being disappointed and thinking they had not taken but they came up.... I think they also got a tad confused as they fruited early summer and again in autumn, which struck me as odd for autumn fruiting canes...

    Sit tight and stay patient, I'm sure they'll come through...

    if I look VERY closely at mine it is almost possible to imagine that the buds on the stem might JUST be swelling a little bit... could be wishful thinking of course!

    Of my 3 free raspberry canes 2 are still just bare twigs but 1 has started sprouting shoots and leaves from around the base. There's nothing resembling buds at all on any of the stems though. I just put them in a large tub of compost with a bit of chicken manure when they arrived & am hoping for the best!

    think I was being very optimistic imagining buds swelling. they still look very sticky to me. which prompts my favourite joke - what's brown and sticky?
    a stick!
