Raspberry Golden Glitz™ is arguably one of the most stunning new raspberry varieties for the home gardener in Australia! Boasting gorgeous golden leaves, this raspberry is as ornamental as it is productive.

Fruiting on new canes, Raspberry Golden Glitz™ is quick to produce and rewards families with deliciously sweet, classic raspberries throughout summer.

Raspberry Golden Glitz™ performs best with part shade in rich, well-draining soils or grown in containers. Prune to ground level as leaves start to deteriorate in autumn/winter. This variety is perfect for containers, balconies, hedges, mass plantings, and kitchen gardens alike!

Description

Site Selection – Plant in full – part shade. If planting, prepare your site with compost, soil improvers, or composted manure.

Planting Dig your hole at the time of planting. Dig a hole twice the width of the pot, and one and a half deep. Backfill with a mixture of premium garden soil. Mulch and water in well. Note – do not use this fill in extremely clay or sandy soils. Create a mound, spend time adjusting your soil, or use a pot. See more information about this in the growing guides in our Plant Care tab.

Potting – Use a pot at least 30cms wide and deep. Use high quality premium potting mix. Mulch and water in well.

Staking – Staking is not necessary.

Watering – Use the 1,2,3,4 method to establish. Water once a day for a week, then every two days for two weeks, then every three days for three weeks, and so on. Always adjust to your local weather and increase watering in hot and windy weather, decrease in cold or rainy weather.

Fertilising – Use a balanced fertiliser blend. The main fertilising period is early Spring and again in Autumn. Yellowing leaves can occasionally be a symptom of a hungry plant. You can try to remedy this with a fast-acting liquid fertiliser, or repot into a larger pot.

Pruning – Prune the whole plant in late autumn/winter to ground when plants start to dieback.

Pest & Disease Control – Netting is the best way to protect your raspberries from animals!
