Glen Magna Raspberry Bushes - Late Season

Description of Glen Magna Plants & Fruit:
Glen Magna is a superb raspberry bush. The later season plants tend to have the best flavours and this is no exception. The big, deeply coloured fruit are delicious, almost too good to use for anything other than eating fresh off the branch. These are certified raspberry plants grown from virus tested parent material in the UK. An upright, tidy and vigorous plant, Glen Magna is also reliably healthy.

Growing Glen Magna Raspberry Plants:
Glen Magna is more resistant to root rot than most other breeds, so it will tolerate slightly damper conditions - that said, we stress that good drainage is still very important.
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 Magna Raspberry Bushes:
The Scottish Crop Research Institute name all their raspberry canes after Scottish Glens. Glen Magna was bred from Meeker and an unreleased plant called SCRI 7719B11.

Glen Magna isn't grown commercially on any large scale - like so many delicious varieties of fruit, this is because it's soft and doesn't travel well.

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.
