R W Walpole Ltd are pleased to offer a full range of raspberry varieties which includes the very best floricane and primocane
selections available to the commercial grower.
Planting healthy cane is crucial to the success of your crop. In order to achieve the highest possible standards of health we restrict our propagation to sites which have never previously grown raspberry and, wherever possible, our stocks are entered and inspected under the Plant Health Propagation Scheme (PHPS).
Our Certified Stock are grown from virus tested parent material supplied by the Nuclear Stock Association (NSA) and sourced from JHI or Naktuinbouw (NAKT).
1. Planting Dates – We strongly advise customers to wait until the leaves have dropped in the autumn before planting. November and December are the ideal planting times for raspberries but good establishment can also be obtained in early spring. Later planting is less reliable and we cannot take responsibility for the performance of fresh canes supplied after 1st March.
2. Cold Storage – Customers wishing to take delivery after 1st March are requested to contact us to arrange for the short-term cold storage of their canes which will be charged at £3.50 per week per thousand canes. Please note that cold-stored canes are slower to break bud than those held a ambient.
