Rubus fruticosus 'Adrienne'
Blackberry 'Adrienne' - 3 litres
Rubus fruticosus 'Adrienne' is an outstanding recently introduced variety producing abundant long, firm, conical berries with an excellent, sweet, richly aromatic flavour. Delicious eaten fresh or stewed, in pies or crumbles, as well as making excellent jam or jelly. Ripens from mid-July in the South, early August in the North. Self-fertile. Stout, vigorous, thornfree canes grow around 2m long.
Plant in well prepared, well drained soil enriched with well-rotted manure or compost, in sun or light shade. Space plants at 2.5-3m intervals. Provide support on wires on a trellis, fence or arch, or on a post and wire structure. Cut old canes down to the ground after fruiting and tie in new canes for the next season's fruit. Mulch with spent hops or compost in spring.
