Glen Doll Raspberry Bushes

A mid-season stalwart, flawless overall. Big crops of big, split resistant fruit on sturdy, upright, relatively wind resistant bushes. Higher than average vitamin C

Certified and grown from virus-tested parent material in the UK. Browse our currant plants.

Please note:
In line with general practice, our raspberries are delivered with last year's growth cut back to 45-60cm.
Summer fruiting raspberries (floricanes) may bear a few berries in the summer following planting, but their first full fruiting season will be in the year after, on their first year's growth.
Autumn fruiting raspberries (primocanes) should crop quite well in their first year, and you can help them by thinning off small and malformed fruit.

Growing Baldwin Blackcurrants:

Blackcurrants are tough plants that will pinch out a small crop in some pretty poor conditions in the shade of trees. They prefer fairly damp soil near water, but also like poor, dry, airy soils that you improve with a lot of compost and irrigate in summer. As with fruit in general, plenty of sun and some shelter from strong wind is best. The ideal soil pH is slightly acidic, but they are flexible.

Read our detailed how to grow blackcurrants page, they need pruning to stay productive.

Spacing: 140cm apart along the rows, with 1.5m between rows.
