Raspberries

YOUR CHOICE OF PLANTS

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 canes are 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) or sourced from JHI.

We recommend

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 from February.

2. Cold Storage – Customers wishing to take delivery after February are requested to contact us to arrange for the short-term cold storage of their canes which will be charged at £16 per thousand canes. Please note that cold-stored canes are slower to break bud than those held at ambient.
Small Quantities
All prices quoted on this website apply to quantities of 50 raspberry canes or more for per individual variety. We are pleased to supply smaller quantities across our range but such small quantities attract and additional charge of 50% above the website price to cover the extra handling and packing costs. Orders of £50 or less are subject to our 'Small Quantities' price list which is available on request.
