Care instructions Grow in moist but well-drained soil in full sun or partial shade. Choose a sunny aspect and provide a good rich soil, with plenty of well-rotted compost. Once the plant has been set in its final place, give it a good watering and then leave it for a couple of weeks before assessing the need for another drink. They don’t usually need much watering unless there has been a considerable drought. After the plant has fruited, prune out the oldest canes, but only one or two, and train the younger ones. Once your plant grows, it will reach a peak of production at around 6-8 years. By this time you’ll have a well-developed regime of pruning and fruiting. Prune in February, and give the plant a good dressing of well-rotted compost and some organic fertiliser each April. The plant is quite hardy in the winter, just don’t water unless it is showing signs of stress. During the summer, feed with a good liquid fertiliser through the flowering and fruit-setting period, once a month until September.
