Professional nurseryman from RV Roger, David Patch, recommends autumn-fruiting raspberries
Give raspberries a liberal layer of organic matter (mulch) in early spring

Raspberries are probably the easiest fruit to grow at home. They can be grown in most soils, will tolerate a little shade, are extremely hardy and pruning is a complete doddle. In addition, they are one of the fruits with the shortest shelf life, so even with modern packaging methods, shop-bought fruit doesn’t last more than a day or so in the fridge. Reasons enough to grow your own and have fruit in abundance! Summerfruiting raspberries crop in late June and July, but the varieties we are going to look at this month are the autumn-fruiting varieties, which fruit from September through until the first frosts.
