Octavia Raspberry Bushes - Late Season

Description of Octavia Plants & Fruit:
Octavia is a reliable new breed with meaty fruit that pop right off the plug. They aren't as richly coloured as some earlier breeds but the flavour is excellent, with few seeds.
Despite being quite soft and juicy, Octavia raspberries do keep well. This is a tidy plant that bears fruit all along the canes, almost down to the bottom and is one of the last raspberries to finish cropping each summer. These are certified raspberry plants grown from virus tested parent material in the UK.

  • Very hardy - recommended for Scotland and the North.
  • Good for freezing.
  • All round disease resistant, apart from Raspberry Bushy Dwarf Virus.
  • Crops Mid-July well into August
  • Certified

Growing Octavia 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.

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

Read about how to grow Summer Fruiting Raspberries here.

Background Information on Octavia Raspberry Bushes:
One of its parents is Glen Ample, the other is an unreleased trial variety (the majority of fruit plants that people breed are never released, but many are kept because they have useful qualities).
First bred in 1996 at the East Malling Research Station by Vicky Knight, Octavia was released in 2002.

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.
