Glen Ample Mid Summer Fruiting Raspberries

Glen Ample is the most prolific of the mid-season raspberries, ripening from the first week of July and continuing to produce tasty plump berries until September, trailing off little by little from August. What's great about this variety is that the stems are pretty much free of thorns, and there's not a huge amount of foliage either, so picking is a simple, painless affair. Add to that its superb disease-resistance and you'll understand why it's up there as one of the most sought-after of our raspberry canes.

Sunny disposition

This stately UK-grown raspberry will appreciate a sunny spot in the garden, where it will fruit to its very best abilities. If you want to extend your supply of raspberries right to the end of autumn, plant it alongside a later-fruiting variety such as classic Autumn Bliss or award-winning Polka. Whatever you grow Glen Ample with, it will thrive in good, moist soil (they detest extremes of dry or damp) that has had plenty of well-rotted manure or compost dug in. It will need fixing to horizontal wires and, like all summer-fruiting raspberries, fruited canes should be cut down to the ground in November. The new canes that are yet to bear fruit should be left, but thinned out to 20cm apart, picking out any that are thin or weak. In line with general practice, all our raspberries are delivered with last year's growth cut back to 45-60cm, so summer raspberries may only bear a few berries in the first summer, then many more the year after.

Monarch of the Glen?

Glen Ample was bred in Dundee, Scotland, a result of a 1978 cross between two earlier varieties, and selected for its outstanding yield, colour, flavour and size. From that trial 40 years ago, it's now become the most widely grown raspberry in the UK.

Please note that in line with general practice, all our raspberries are delivered with last year's growth cut back to 45-60 cms. So summer fruiting raspberries may only bear a few berries in the summer following planting and their first full fruiting season will be in the year after.
