Rubus idaeus 'Malling Admiral'
Raspberry 'Malling Admiral' - 3 litres
Rubus idaeus Raspberry 'Malling Admiral' is a classic variety producing good yields of firm red berries with a very good flavour for picking from early to late July. Delicious fresh and excellent for freezing and jam making. The canes are almost spine-free, with good disease-resistance. All raspberries are self-fertile.
Container grown plants can be planted throughout the year. Bare-root plants are available from November to March. Plant 45cm apart in well-drained, preferably slightly acid soil. Needs support: tie to post-and-wire supports with the top wire at 1.65m. Ripens best in full sun, but light shade is acceptable. Shelter from strong winds is essential.
Prune annually immediately after picking, cutting all fruited canes down to ground level. Select the best 6 new canes and tie in 10cm apart. In February cut all canes to 15cm above the top wire.
