Spring 2011: snapped it up when I saw it in the nursery. I love berries so couldn't resist. I beleive that this variety doesn't need frostto bear good fruit... we will just have to wait and see!

This variety (ribes uva-crispa) is thornless which also attracted me-between the various raspberries I usually come away from gardening with holes in something - either myself or my clothes!

Summer 2011: It has taken a while to settle in to the garden. I think more due to the wet and cold than anything else. It is starting to get some new growth now that the weather is warming up. Have notices those nasty leaf curling caterpillars in the new growth. GRRR!
