Cultural Notes: Sunny site with some afternoon shade. Plants are best grown with support from a boundary fence or similar as they have a trailing habit, try in a planter box against a wall, tied down with wire for support. Ideal in smaller gardens. Loganberries prefer a slightly acidic soil and free draining. Mulch well to ensure the root systems remain moist during the growing season. An application of general fertiliser in spring with compost mulch is all that is required. Too much nitrogen will encourage leaf production instead of flowers. Prune in winter to remove all canes that have fruited and all damaged and weak canes. Remove canes to the base, any fully thorny canes should be cut off as low to the ground as possible. Tie up young trailing canes to a trellis system, they will fruit in the second year. Remove tips so canes do not become too long and encourage fruiting laterals. Good hygiene and not growing plants in wet soils will keep many diseases at bay. Bird netting may be needed. A spring spray at bud burst for insectfestation and regular sprays will ensure fruit are pest free. Cold weather at flowering will result in poor pollination and therefore small fruit.
