Meet Raspberry Razzle™, a new raspberry variety that boasts convenience, aesthetics, and taste all in one! This variety is a standout amongst all raspberries currently offered in Australia.

The dwarf, mounding ball habit of Raspberry Razzle™ makes it accessible to all home gardeners because it removes the need for stakes and ties. Raspberry Razzle™ fruits on one year old canes with an abundance of classic sweet red berries from summer to autumn.

Raspberry Razzle™ suits pots, containers, balconies, and kitchen gardens alike. This variety is perfectly at home in full sun or part shade and is a great introductory raspberry for beginner gardeners.

Description

Site Selection – Plant in full sun. 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!
