RUBUS idaeus RASPBERRY Polka
An autumn fruiting variety, bred in Poland, which is very heavy cropping and has large berries of excellent flavour. The stems are vigorous and almost completely spineless.
Soak the root-ball before planting. Plant 45cm (18in) apart in rows 1.2m (4ft) apart. Plant in a sheltered spot in a well-drained but moist, fertile soil in full sun or light shade. Plant in a hole twice the diameter of the root-ball or pot. Mix an organic soil improver and general fertiliser with the infill soil. Water regularly until established.
Fruit is produced on the current year’s cane, although this variety can also have two smaller crops a year if the previous years canes are left in but topped back to just below where the autumn fruits were produced.
