Glen Lyon Raspberry Bushes - Early Season

Description of Glen Lyon Plants & Fruit:
Glen Lyon (& Glen Moy) are the earliest cropping raspberry bushes we grow. Glen Lyon is a model plant - hardy, disease resistant and quite vigorous.
The fruit are nice when eaten by themselves, but not equal to the gourmet flavour of later cropping varieties. We recommend making jam, cooking them or mixing them with cereal or dessert to get the best out of these fruit. These are certified raspberry plants grown from virus tested parent material in the UK.

Growing Glen Lyon Raspberry Plants:
Raspberries are easy to grow, but they do need good conditions: a rich soil that drains well & is kept moist in dry weather, lots of sun and ideally some shelter from strong wind.

Background Information on Glen Lyon Raspberry Bushes:
All the raspberry canes bred by the Scottish Crop Research Institute are named after Glens in Scotland.

Most supermarket raspberries come from Spain these days; the Spanish climate is much better for them.
In 2007 it was discovered that Spanish farmers were growing Glen Lyon and other varieties without permission (the raspberries were even being sold in Scottish supermarkets - not too bright!).
The Scottish Crop Research Institute's lawyers had a chat, struck a deal and now Glen Lyon is now the most popular variety over there.
It is mainly popular because its firm fruit travel well, but it is also fair to say that the sunnier, warmer weather does make a tastier fruit than a home grown berry.

Please remember to plant raspberries with their roots just under the surface. Deep planting kills them.

Please note that in line with general practice, all our raspberries are delivered with last year's growth cut back to 45-60 cms. Summer fruiting raspberries may therefore bear a very few berries in summer following planting but their first full fruiting season will be in the year after. Autumn fruiting raspberries will fruit much better in their first year than their summer fruiting cousins.
