Glen Lyon Raspberry Bushes - Mid Season

Description of Glen Lyon Plants & Fruit:
Glen Lyon is the earliest of the mid-season cropping raspberry varieties we grow and sell. It is a model plant - hardy, disease resistant and quite vigorous. The canes are virtually thornless and because of their habit of tending to come from the centre of the plant, they present fruit in a way that makes picking easy. The flavour is full and tangy, cropping is heavy and Glen Lyon is one of the best raspberries to keep in the fridge. It also freezes well. As with all the plants in our range of raspberries for sale these are certified plants grown from virus-tested parent material in the UK.

  • Thornless.
  • Upright growth.
  • Large crops.
  • Fruit weight is about 4g.
  • Glossy fruit, firm texture, excellent tangy flavour.
  • Certified

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. This is especially true with Glen Lyon which absolutely hates heavy clay soils. All raspberries like the sun and the summer fruiting varieties, in particular, are happier with 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 and 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!). 

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.
