I have been Growing Raspberries for a bit over a year. Here is a picture I took a couple of days ago of them.

Perhaps you will get fruit this time next year once it has a bit more time to establish.

Heritage and Autumn Bliss are autumn-bearing varieties where fruits are set on new (1-year old) canes....
and Chilliwack is an early-bearing variety .....
Where can I buy these raspberry varieties, please.
Thnx.

Shaun I have them.

You can get them from Diggers, but they sold out for this year I think.

We got Heritage, Williamette and Chillwack.

You grow the autumn fruiters as an annual ie chop back after fruiting.

The summer ones, grow in the first year and have a small autumn crop, tip the canes after fruiting. The next year these bear a full size summer crop and are then chopped out. That years shoots then have an autumn crop and so on and son on.

Search NSW Ag Dept for the VERY helpful info sheet.

Hi John,
May I buy a cane of cutting of each variety from you, please.
I am trying to grow them in pots.
It is more convenient since you are in Perth.

Thanks John,
If you get the collection, I think they gave you 5 Heritage, 5 Chilliwack and 2 Williamette.
If you cannot spare the Williamette, you may be able to sell 1 Heritage and 1 Chilliwack to me.
Thanks again

Had 1 x heritage and 2 x chillwack put aside for you, but ended up swapping them for a semi dawrf ganny smith -MM106 rootstock (60% size).

I can get you some later when these plants sprout up and grow a bit, this will be quite a while.

OR Bunnings Belmont have no name raspberries near the tills inside the plastic bag bulb section. I have grown these before, they are OK but not great.

OR do you want me to order some from Diggers for you, with my next order?

BTW guys- your right you get 5,5 and 2 with the "collection" but I ordered mine as individual canes- bit confusing initially- as my first order was for 5 individual canes of 2 varieties (i.e. 10 canes total)- and when the third variety became available- I ordered 1 lot- which was 5 canes.

Nearly all of mine are in the ground except for 2 I put aside in a pot- the two in the pot are sprouting much more strongly- mainly because the pot is heating up faster than the ground.

I saw about a dozen packets of Williamette raspberry bare-rooted plants in Bunnings Bunbury on Monday, and when I got there this morning, they are all sold out !!!
They went like hot cakes ....
hopefully, other Bunnings stores have some stock of these bare-rooted plants.

I got 4 of the Williamette Raspberry canes from Bunnungs. I planted them in the ground. 3 of them got the green leaves quickly. About a month on two of those canes with leaves - the leave died. They were getting watered. There is now just one with leaves and has about 6 flowers on it (almost more flowers than leaves. the soil is sound, which i put compost and sheep poo on, as well as a light does of azalea fertiliser. I also put some peat straw around them. Every fortnight i have been giving it a liquid drink with seaweed and fish. Any ideas on what happened with the leaves sunddenly dying off and is there anything i can do to rescue them.

$35 each?- down in Bunbury they were selling for 45-$55 each depending on whether they were in Bunnings or a nursery- suprisingly though- when I checked yesterday Bunnings had sold every pot except for one (the raspberries).

All I can say is at that price I'm glad I got mine from Diggers

Yikes, I thought the ones I bought a few years ago in West Swan were expensive at ~$7/pot! (compared to previous canes I'd got from Garden Express, but they stopped sending them to WA). (There used to be a nursery in West Swan with lots of fruit that I think must have closed? ...can't remember what it was called, but can't find it in the white pages or anything... anyone know what happened to it or whether it's still there?) ...those raspberries unfortunately died from my not getting the retic and shade organised early enough that summer... I might have to wait and buy canes next winter!

Thanks for the info! :-)

Hi guys, I bought a couple of rasberry bushes from bunnings a couple of years ago. We live in the Hinterlant of the Gold Coast. I now have one bush that is sending out new shoots and have a lot of berries on them, the key is to cut them back hard each year. Our grand-daughter(2 years old) goes down with a pail to gather the fruit each weekend and eat it before her mother gets her hands on them, we think. It has just gone off, we have trimed it back big time and hoping for some great fruit next year. The fruit is so different to the ordinary rasberrys but tastes wonderful. Maureen

Hi John,
Thanks for putting aside some Chilliwack & Heritage raspberry canes for me.
You said you dug them out around Xmas/Boxing Day ..... I will be away fer a wee while in Mid-January 2009, and will get back to Perth on the 2nd week of Feb'09.
Are you able to hold on to those canes until I am back to pick them up from you, please.

Have you got an email address, John? Pls forward your email address to me via SMS (you got my mobile phone number the last time we form the shipping syndicate).

Happy New Year in 2009 to you & your family !!!

Hi, I have grown rasberries here for the last couple of years. As pointed out previously, I needed to have fed them more. That is why they took a couple of years to flower and produce fruit. Hopefully, now that I have chooks, their menour and the hay form the coop will feed the plants. The other problem is that the plant is in the middle of the chicken run and the girls love the plant so much that they eat it. Beware, do not have you rasberry bush in the middle of the chicken coop.

The girls have not eaten the rasberry bush to death, but I am watching it. They need to learn what is my feed is not theirs. I think that I will probably have to buy a new plant to be away from the girls. I have one chook that thinks that the top of the coop is her domaine. "Little does she know'. she has reached to the rasberry bush this way. Maureen

Thankyou to everyone for the help on the raspberries. Also thankyou for the email. I had misplaced the address of the forum, so it is great to see the generous response.

My next question would be, when do I plant them and what special care should I do? IE what kind of fertiliser? And do they grow best in large pots?

Thanks Maryanne

They'll grow (and be contained easier) in large pots- just be sure to make sure they don't dry out. Best off using manures/blood and bone/dynamic lifter and/or slow release fertilizer when growing in pots.

I am hoping that the chicken manure will help with the rasberry bush. It did not receive regular fertalising until now, it is now constant. I am not trying to directly fertalise my bush but wanting to do it indirectly with the bush beside the chicken coop. You cannot get better than that, hopefully. I need to look up permaculture notes on this and what I can do with this situation. Maureen

I am interested in people who have had success with raspberries in Perth. I am looking for the best place to plant them. I am thinking morning sun, since afternoon sun is supposed to kill them. How much shade can they have and still fruit? Perhaps afternoon sun with shadecloth would be good, as the shadecloth would protect them from the wind too. Our worst wind all comes from the morning sun direction.

I've got mine in a 3 way- us shaped trellis run- with a plum tree planted in the middle. There's a high fence to the north and east- so it's the coldest, wettest spot in my garden. I still found that the fruit produced during high summer were poor- relatively dry- and the taste of the late spring/early summer varieties (chilliwack and williamette) was better than the summer variety I have - Heritage- which suffers more from the heat.

In saying that- Heritage is still fruiting well into autumn (still picking now) and the quality/juiciness/flavour has improved in the late season. BTW- I'm in Bunbury- a little cooler than Perth- but pretty close.

My plant is now fruiting, and this is in Mudgeeraba, QLD. We have a very cold winter here, down to 0 some mornings, but no frost. We are too high in the mountains. The fruiting is just starting, one only berry so far. The chooks are looking at it frequently, and I am worried if I am going to get any fruit from it this year and if I need to get a new plant elsewhere next year. I have one tuber coming up under the chicken coop. We will wait and see. Maureen

Hello all,
I bought a heritage rasberry plant a few days ago and I want to know if it is better to have two of them in order to get rasberries. Or could I just plant one? Also where is the best place to plant it?

Tara:
You should be right with one raspberry plant but having two can increase your yield as they do benefit from pollination.

In my experience they hate wind and direct sun but go well in a semi shaded position here in brisbane.

There is some great info and comments on this page:

My Williamette raspberry bush don't seem to be doing well .....
it is grown in a large pot, but all the growth are spindly and thin and growth has been extremely slow in the last 9 month that I got it ......
Needless to say, it has not flowered or fruited at all .... :-(

williamette grows this year and fruits the next. then you chop it out.

if growth very vigourous you will get a primocane crop in summer.

Melony: Daleys does not propagate Autumn Bliss.

The ones we do propagate are:

Atherton Raspberry Native to QLD

Raspberry Heritage

..and most recently the
Raspberry Williamette

If you think that the Raspberry Autumn Bliss is great and it's not a PBR variety you should get in contact with us perhaps we could get some cuttings off you.

Hi Jimmy,
Thanks for the Raspberry Heritage plant.
I'd repotted it in a bigger pot .... hope to get some berry fruits from it this Autumn, since it is a primo-cane variety.
I'm sure Saxman would like to get some plants from you too ..... if you have not already contacted him.
CHEERS !!

that's all the fruit I got from 1 cane that I planted earlier.
It was sooo delicious ..... this is the first time I have tasted freshly picked ripe Raspberry.

I have not got any fruit from my Williamette, and hope to get some fruit from the Heritage plant next season.

Does anyone know where I can buy a native rasberry plant from?

Botanical Name: Rubus sp.
The native raspberries are small to medium prickly shrubs, some being scramblers. The photograph shows Rubus moluccanus also known as Rubus hillii. This species has a metallic sheen on the underside of the leaf. It bears white flowers followed by 10 mm red berries in spring to summer. Other species include Rubus parvifolius and Rubus rosifolius.

Hi

I grow raspberries in Canberra - they fruit on 2 year old canes although you do sometimes get a few fruit on younger ones. About September/October I remove all of the dead canes- they are easy to see then as they go a dark brown in colour and just fall out of the ground. You will then be left with two and one year old canes.

When is the best time to dig up raspberry runners for transplant. I did 2 a week ago and they seem fine, I have a few dozen to do though so would like to get it right this next batch.

Should have some Heritage (i think, old ones from down the farm, 2 crops a year) runners if Perth people are interested.

I have more luck with Williamette and Chilliwack than Heritage- but plant them where they get some shade- they'll still fruit.

Mine are in a U shaped trellis around a plum tree. tall fences to the north and east- an area where when I used to have lawn- I got moss growing in the winter.

I've never tasted the European raspberries- so can't comment I'm afraid.

Fresh raspberries from the bush are far superior to those you'll get in the shop though.

Charles cant spell says...
Bunning Innaloo had some the other day, Lena Nursery also had some today. Als ocould try WAldecks, just ring around I have seen a few, bunnings gets them in as little root stocks and puts them near the bulbs and seed potatoes sometimes. Also can get Jewruselum Artichokes there.

I have a few but I killed a lot of what I have as most of my soil is around 8 ph and the raspberries dont like that.

After I finish this School Garden project I will spend some time on my own garden, drop my ph or pot them and see what I have.

Jules I am a stone throw away, your not the Julie that just joined PAWA from Gwelup by any chance?

I was under the impression that Perth was too warm for raspberries. Is there anyone in Perth who can testify that raspberries really do produce here?

hi hawkypork,

If you'd read the earlier posts about, I think John and Jimmy got reasonable success from their Raspberry plants.

I used to have Chilliwack and Williamette grown in pots, and I got some berries from my plants.
Jimmy gave me a Heritage cane which I also planted in a pot.
Unfortunately, all my 3 pots of Raspberry bushes were killed by the extreme summer heat this year when I was away on a 'fly-out' trip.

Can't say for sure whether my Raspberry plants were prolific bearers, because they were grown in pots to curb the rampant spread of raspberry runners.
Nevertheless, I do get some berries.

What size pot is best used for growing the Raspberries in? I've just order one from Daleys Fruit as was going to put it in the vege garden but reading this thread feel it might be better in a pot.... so need to know what size pot and then do they need repotting?

I don't have any raspberry pictures so have attached some of my passionfruit flowers I've been hand pollinating - has been very successful.

I suggest using a 60L black bin obtainable from Bunnings (around $10). You'll find that even with one or two canes planted in it, your whole bin will be filled with them after one summer. In my case, I pulled them all up, but I still find the odd ones growing here and there in my vegie patch. Btw, they do fruit here in Perth.

I have the same problem as you, roger. I have seen pictures of nice clumps of raspberry canes tied up to wire fence strands neatly, but mine are a carpet about 2m by 2m. Should I cut/ pull out some, leaving lines of canes that I can tie up, or is that futile?

thanks,

Diana.

Run some wire and tie the canes up to that. Pull out canes that come up where you don't want them (easier to do when they're young).

Not sure- definitely higher than that- but there's not much point letting them get higher as it's too hard to pick them. If you've got horizontal wires to guide them- just wind the canes around the top wire once they get higher than it (top wire at 1.5-1.8m- whatever you find an easy upper picking height.

I'm 6'3, so that top wire is probably the upper limit. Thanks for the advice, I'll see how it goes winding the cane around the top.

How many canes would you recommend to sustain? There's the two tall ones in that photo, and another 2 that I can see have popped up out of the soil.

I have two raspberry plants, one bush (chilliwack I think) from Bunnings, and one Nelly Kelly cane. Both are only planted several weeks back. The cane is growing well but the Chilliwack leaves are pretty crispy, turning brown from the outside in. Its never had full sun, just morning followed by shade. Also plenty of water as the water gauge shows moderate moist soil. Not sure what I'm doing wrong with that one.

The heritage plant I pictured in an earlier post is planted nort east side of the house about 1.5m from the house and next to a 6ft fence. Thus it gets some midday sun and morning/afternoon shade.

It is one year old now and has coped with this summer in Perth fine. My chillwack plants are not so good and similar to what Donovan has described. Happy gardening everyone .

I have picked about 70-80 raspberries from this plant so far and they are delicious .

Others who have tried them are now going to have a go they were so impressed. I will definitely split and plant more of this variety.

I have had a better yield from my raspberry plant than my strawberries. I will be happy indeed if next year produces similar results.

Hate to be the pimented man in the woodpile,however the best thing about the Heritage var. of raspberry is its appearance. I'll concede that growing conditions are important but my Heritage was so insipid I pulled it out. Yes,it is an autumnal fruited variety . Yes, it needs no support.Yes, it looks terrriff. But no, it tastes insipid. Check with others before planting as there are other more modern autumnal varieties.( I am trialling some now)

You are welcome to express your opinion Kert. I simply cannot agree with you about the taste. I have given them for others to try and they keep asking for more. I think they taste surpurb "insipid" ????? not the word Id use. Good luck with your other autumn varieties . I hope they taste better than insipid.

Raspberry's everywhere says...
Best advice :grow,eat and make your own mind up easy .

Product Description:

The Heritage Raspberry, 'Rubus 'Heritage', has medium-sized red berries that have very good flavor and quality. It is exceptional for fresh eating or for making pies and jams. The medium sized fruits have good color and flavor, firmness, and freezing quality. Heritage is an outstanding everbearing variety that produces a crop in mid-July and then again in early September. They are disease-resistant, highly productive, easy-to-grow and will bear fruit the first year. The Heritage red raspberry has been given the 2004 Outstanding Fruit Cultivar Award by the American Society of Horticultural Sciences.

http://www.naturehills.com/product/heritage_raspberry.aspx

Make the Heritage Raspberry Plant part of your home orchard for easy to grow fruit. An ever bearing red raspberry, harvest the Heritage Raspberries in June with a second crop in September. High quality with an excellent, mild flavor, the Heritage Raspberry Plants are excellent good fresh or in jams.

Heritage is a classic name in raspberries, a red variety with sweet flavor and great holding ability on the vine. Unlike some varieties, Heritage won't fall to pieces if you delay picking the ripe fruit a day or two; it stays firm, juicy, and super-flavorful. Plants are very vigorous and resist Powdery Mildew.

This is the prize that causes eager berry lovers to flock to pick-your-own patches. Easiest of all to grow.

I'm thinking maybe it's the area you grow in. When i lived in the Dandenongs, it was the least pleasant. Now I'm in a colder climate, it's really come into it's own. It gets two good flushes of fruit, and is stll fruiting long after all the others have closed down for the winter.The tate is really good, and it stays on the vine well.

Obviously as pointed out by Adamus different locations suit different varieties.

I can only comment on what I have grown and eaten and Im very impressed with my raspberry growing endeavors to date.

It is very short sighted to dismiss any variety as underperforming without taking into account the conditions/location under which it is grown.

Anyone can selectively quote. Quoting from a USA nursery whose prime motive is to sell plants is hardly an impartial view. Heritage is an American variety btw.
Here's what the DPI NSW has to say for an objective opinion: "The fruit is small to medium sized, firm with FAIR flavour." And being an autumn bearing cane note the issue for cooler areas: (DPI again) "In cooler areas fruit may cease ripening before harvest is complete." Can't ripen them post harvest unfortunately.
The variety I'd like to get my hands on is Bogong, a Victorian bred variety, said by the DPI to have excellent flavour.

Have to agree with adamus about growing conditions, our raspberries (given to me, variety unknown) are normally delicious but with this very cool autumn(no ripe autumn figs, sob) we've had they have been superb. I've also noticed that unlike other fruit that gets sweeter and more flavourful the riper it gets, raspberries are better picked as soon as they are fully coloured and not left to ripen further. Well that's here in Mt Gambier anyway.

In Vic. I had autumn bearing raspberries that had large fruit & were delicious! They were the ones that are cut down to near ground level every winter consequently bearing on a single seasons growth. The only fruit that were insipid were the occasional ones that appeared early winter.( before the chop)

Yes Chris anyone can quote so I hope you don't mind me quoting you . Quote "In cooler areas fruit may cease ripening before harvest is complete." Can't ripen them post harvest unfortunately. Exactly my point in a previous post I live in sunny Perth.

Quote "Here's what the DPI NSW has to say for an objective opinion: "The fruit is small to medium sized, firm with FAIR flavour." And being an autumn bearing cane note the issue for cooler areas: The research was done in NSW not Perth which is where I try and grow raspberry's the last time I looked.

Only primocane varieties could be attempted in mediterranean like climates such as Perth. Even these would be marginal given the conditions.
There is a reason why the major raspberry producing countries are all cool/temperate areas.

Quite a long thread, so I have just come in at the end.
I'm in north Brisbane and I have been successfully growing "Williamette" raspberries. They are a little prickly but produce quite a lot of very nice fruit - oddly enough all through winter this year. I have now cut the canes back and they are reshooting all over the place (as raspberries will do).

Hi everyone. My canes planted last year around March and cut down in winter have begun growing gangbusters out here in Perth. My only concern is some of the leaves lower on the plant are turning yellow, anyone have any ideas as to why?

I'm hoping to taste my first raspberries this year.

Also, I'd like to plant a couple more, but kind of the wrong time of year to buy canes. Anyone know of anywhere in Perth with some available?

Lissa: Great looking berries, glad to see success!

Someone I know at Mareeba is sucessfully growing raspberries,boysenberries and blackberries of unknown varieties.He suggests that they should be productive at my place in Cairns.Mareeba is about half the altitude(450m) of the nearby Atherton Tableland and very dry with less than 1000mm/yr.Does it sound possible that they could fruit in a place with no chill hours at all?

Hi John - no shade - they're growing out on the front wire fence getting direct western sun. Roots are very protected though by groundcover and mulch. We had quite a few low temp nights through this winter - down to 4/5 degrees.

One plant I had in partial shade (think it was Bi-centennial or some such, given by a gardening friend) never did any good and has since disappeared.

Have recently put in a Youngberry.

I concur with the raspberries being a weed. I planted mine in a pot, they have now spread in the ground about half a metre to the left of where they originally started.

I thought the clay soil might hold them back, but it doesn't seem to phase them.

Ive never experianced such an agressive plant. Poison the top with 360 or assotiate and it "Appears" to die then there are 100 runners popping up several metres away.

If you plant them where you can just mow up and down the rows beside the plants they are much easier to control.

Only if I let them grow to year old cains. and to be honest, for the amount of room they take,, I found them just not worth time/space/effort. That is when I found my problems after pulling them out. I envisaged raspberry jam & pies and stuff but you would need an acre paddock full of them to get the quantity.
Having said that, The 10 square metre clump we had was a novelty to the kids

They don't sound worth the effort.
as much I like raspberries, 10 sqm is still a pretty big investment for a small garden.
Thanks for the advice. I think that amount of space is probably better spent on asparagus or a few little fruit trees

Raspberries - When and What do I spray? My raspberries in pots are looking fantastic and starting to flower-last season they had white grubs inside(fruit fly?)(don't know how many I ate before I discovered them, no wonder they were juicy) the fruit - husband sprayed don't know what - but it killed them off and we had no more trouble.
What do I need to do to prevent this happening this season please?

Not every grub is a f.fly; fruit fly larvae jump when prodded from behind gently, most else don't.

I would get a handlful off mine each day Donovan. One smallish patch on the front fence so I figure I'm doing ok. They were all cut back during winter and now shooting again. A heap coming up in the lawn again where I don't want them - will give to friends.

I've got raspberries growing for the first year in Perth, interested to see how I go. How did the other Perth people end up going? I've just put shade cloth over them for the start of our hot weather.

One thing I'm confused on is when do I cut the canes back? I keep reading I have to do it but don't know when!!!

It depends on what raspberry you have I think one type you cut it all down and the other you cut just the 2nd years growth. Mine have been just hanging in there, they are quite negleted.

The variety I grow successfully in Brisbane are called Williamette. They provide some delicious fruit.

I find I don't have a problem with the runners by just mowing over them or pulling them out.

Well worth the effort.

Hi Lissa,

Would it be possible to get some runners from you? I've always been a vege gardener, but I'm switching onto fruit lately, with pawpaws and citrus and pepinos. Maybe even passionfruit if the possums give it a break.

My email address is rob f walter at gmail dot com.

I can get some pepino cuttings on the go if you would like to trade. Or French tarragon. Or lettuce seeds. Basil. Greek basil. Am I waffling?

Rob

Hi Rob. Sorry for my late response to your post. I usually wait for the automatic email updates.

I'm sure we can get you some runners. I've got a couple coming up in the lawn where I don't want them. Downside is you have to wait two years for fruit from runners - second year canes fruit next season. Once summer fruiting season is over I would be able to do some canes if you preferred and they would post unlike the runners. I'm north of Brisbane - where are you?

I'll email.

Already have lots of Pepino, thank you. Any seed is always appreciated (will add to the giant seed box that I share from).

Thanks to a helpful friend (rewarded with produce from the garden) I now have a proper trellis to grow my raspberries on!

We adapted the concept from a frame I saw on YouTube video: http://brisbanelocalfood.ning.com/video/how-do-i-prune-raspberries

The plants are currently rambling all over the place and starting to fruit, so I'll have to wait until that is finished before I start moving them up into the frame.

Hi, I am in Adelaide and only have a South facing fence where I want to plant some berries (raspberry/blackberry). Unless I figure out how to arrange it in a more shaded spot, I was thinking of constructing a structure over it with shade cloth, which would shade it from the sun, wind and protect from birds...I was thinking of just putting netting on the sides to allow a breeze, bees, etc. I was thinking of making it about 1.5m wide and 6m long (Southern fence) with a trellis in teh middle for the canes to grow up...

Does anyone think my idea might work (or better yet, had success growing them in hot regions under shade cloth)???

cheers,
gabs

Mine are facing south but against a fence. Over summer I just had a little strip of shadecloth length ways covering the fruit. I was pretty impressed.. just make sure they have good drainage or once they start to ripen theyl dry out and fall off ..
