Raspberry 'Little Sweet Sister' Rubus idaeus

Raspberry 'Little Sweet Sister' Rubus idaeus

Stuart McIntyre

Regular price £12.00 Sale

A world novelty: compact growing, thornless primocane autumn raspberry, ideal for growing in pots. Described by the breeder as the ‘fastest of raspberries’ due to its unparalleled speed in producing cane, flowers & fruit.

Once established, Little Sweet Sister® starts to bear fruit around the middle of July - 3 weeks before Autumn Bliss! The fruits are medium-sized with a beautiful dark red colour. One of the Lowfruit® series by Lubera: fruit plants that can be grown and harvested simply without problems in small spaces, in the garden, on a balcony or terrace, growing no taller than a metre.

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.
