MArk, think you should grow your own!!! Lol Crissie, glad you got your plants and that they are in already!!!!!! You dont hang about do you! Thanks TT, Karen & Hywel, have never grown these before so fingers crossed, they are called Autumn Bliss. Do they need loads of water? Hope not! Karen those Camellias are my neighbours and have been in for about 25 yrs. New people live there now and they are very neglected, I throw special feed over the wall to all three shrubs, they are huge.

Lovely to have some raspberries. We used to have some in rows in our last garden. I used to cut the old wood down to the ground every few years. In the winter I'd put some compost round them. I watered mine if there wasn't much rain, when they were forming the fruit. They should be very productive for you, but remember the birds like them too. We had so many that sharing them with the birds didn't really matter. Raspberries freeze well and the jam is lovely too.

Linda thanks for that tip, will cover mine up with an old net curtain or something if I need to, and if I have too many I will let them share, then freeze some too.

San, thanks, I have planted 8 canes in my garden and 6 in my daughters, should be a good crop.

We took some raspberry cuttings from relatives in Cardiff 2 years ago and took them back to Milford Haven on the train. Luckily they have taken and we have some nice new shoots this year again.
