Planting

Grow against a fence or wall for support in well-drained but moist, fertile soil in full sun or partial shade.

When planting ensure the root ball is moist before planting. Plant in a hole twice the diameter of the root ball or pot. Mix soil improver and general fertiliser with the infill soil. Water regularly until established. Fruit is produced on the previous year's stems. Tie in the new shoot - these will flower and fruit in the second year. Cut away the older stems and replace them with new vigorous shoots. Cut back damaged shoots in late winter and apply a general fertiliser.
