Most definitely - but you need to grow the appropriate ones. The autumn-fruiting varieties (including Heritage) will grow in warm climates; they should be pruned right down to ground level in the winter and they will do fine without much chill.

Hi nikki,

Yes, heritage or autumn bliss (which is sometimes in nurseries) are good. Williamette is a summer one which will fruit in SE Qld, so would be OK for you too.

It's well worth a try I reckon; raspberries are so expensive to buy (two punnets is the cost of a plant).

Diana.

Hi Diana,

It looks like your raspberries are getting attacked by grasshoppers too? I'm in Brisbane, and I've got little grasshoppers everywhere, but they seem to particularly munch on the leaves of the raspberries.

Cheers,
Mick

Hi Mick,
Yes, there were quite a few grasshoppers and caterpillars around after the rain here too. I am in Kenmore. I found some enormous green caterpillars eating the grape vine that I've never seen before in early January, but they've gone now.

The raspberry seems to be outgrowing the damage faster than it is being eaten, it has lots of uneaten new leaves. I hope it will still fruit well. I haven't done any pest control.

Thanks,

Diana.
