Bred at East Malling Research, Octavia is named after the Roman month of August thereby suggesting its fruiting period, bridging the gap between summer and autumn fruiting varieties. Widely used commercially, the large juicy fruits are uniform, firm & have a superb sweet flavour.  The succulent berries are well displayed in prominent clusters and are easily plugged for a trouble-free picking experience. It is a moderately vigorous variety that prolifically crops all the way down to the base of the fruiting cane.  Octavia is particularly noted for its excellent shelf life.  Exceptionally hardy, having been known to survive -30 degrees! An excellent choice for the home garden.

  • Suitable For: Beds

Raspberries grow best in free draining soils, if drainage is poor, grow on a raised bed. It is essential that they are planted in ground that has never grown raspberries or any plant of the genus Rubus before. Pruning is not required at planting time but in subsequent years, remove the canes which have fruited and train in the new canes. Support the canes on posts and wires. Mulch yearly with well rotted compost or manure to retain moisture and suppress weeds. Water well in dry periods, and apply a growmore type fertiliser in the spring.
