I just wanted to let you know my plants have arrived today as promised. I have unpacked them and they are wonderful, I am so pleased with them. They are much bigger than I expected and in tip-top condition. Thank you so much. I also think they are really excellent value for money – I buy most of my plants on-line (living in Cornwall the choices are a bit limited) and I had looked for Hydrangea seemannii at my usual on-line supplier but they were so expensive I was a bit put off. Ten pounds per plant more (!) Then I searched around and found you – your plants were considerably cheaper and larger so I was a bit worried they might fall short of the mark. But… absolutely no worries on that front. In fact I bought two seemannii from the other supplier earlier this year (I think they are a very ‘useful’ plant, particularly for someone who lives in a walled garden) so can do a direct comparison. Interestingly, they are smaller than yours now even though they have been in the ground and well cared for, for more than six summer months. Many thanks, excellent service and terrific plants – I will be back..!Debbie Frost
Boysenberry Plants carry almost oblong dark purple fruit with all the flavour of a wild blackberry - although several times the size. Boysenberries are quite vigorous and crop very heavily. A fairly complicated cross between loganberries, raspberries and dewberries,Boysenberry plants are immensely hardy. They are also even more resistant to disease and drought than blackberries.
Children love them and race along the row to find the biggest fruit first. Every soft fruit garden should have at least one - or two for families of 4 plus.
Given their tough nature, cultivation is easy. All boysenberry plants demand is light and a modicum of drainage - they are not good in the shade or on potters clay. Otherwise, plant them at 2 metre intervals, improve the soil if you feel like it and pick the berries.
