    Give them a good Mulch of manure as well, they will repay you with fruit next year. If you haven't got any Muck, compost from the bin would be good or even some Fertiliser if your not Organic - the first two would be better though.

    Hi

    back to the original topic about the raspberry canes. Mine are fruiting now also but instead of the golden juicy berries i was expecting, i have got 1-6 normal raspberries per cane- suggesting that the canes i was sent were in fact normal summer canes that are fruiting in their first year...hmmm

    has anyone else had this same problem?

    Sounds strange Iainhawk, mine have just got a few pale green fruits showing at the moment but I'll keep an eye on them now that you've said that.

    Mine are definitely the Autumn golden coloured ones (see photo attached), only got 5 ripe ones at the moment but they went down a treat with some yoghurt at dinner!

    Hi rasberry lovers
    I have just become the pround 'mum' to 5 canes of Ample Glen, from Suttons. As a new mum I want to do the best by them - but I have failed already! I haven't be fit enought to go down the lottie and prepare their new bed and now it is far to wet and soggy to even think of doing it.
    Do you think that putting them into the biggest plant pots I have and stand them in a unheated green house they will be ok until I get the chance to sort the bed out? I have never grown rasberries before, but we love them so though would give them a go. Please Help

    Thank YOu
