Most soft fruits are very easy to grow in the UK with very few special requirements except for maybe blueberries which need acid soil and feed. Soft fruits are best planted in a sunny, sheltered site protected from cold, dry winds but nearly all types will do reasonably well in light shade as well. But remember more sun equals more fruit! Containerised grown canes can be planted at any time of the year providing the ground is not frozen or waterlogged.

Enrich the soil with manure or compost before planting and feed each year. Keep the plants well-watered and free from weeds.  Almost all types of fruits may need to be protected from preying birds when they are fruiting and depending on the fruit bush you choose will depend on when and if it needs pruning

We have had delivered today – BLACKBERRY, BLUEBERRY, BLACKCURRANT, GOOSEBERRY, LOGANBERRY, HONEYBERRY, RASPBERRY, REDCURRANT, WHITECURRANT. 

Please note we do not have strawberries yet but they will be in later in the spring.
