Cultural Notes: Needs protection from hot winds. Grow in slightly acidic, well drained soil. Big feeder, needs plenty of well rotted compost added before planting. Plant 1 to 2 canes together and space 2.5m apart for best coverage. Best grown with supports on a fence or a large trellis and cut back to size after summer fruiting season has past. Get the trailing stems up and off the ground and train along wires between sturdy posts to create an edible screen. Tidy the plant up during their winter dormancy. Handle fruit with care. Net fruit before the birds eat. Liquid feed throughout the growing season. Information and images courtesy of Ramm Botanicals.
