In fact the mild British summer weather is ideal for raspberries. The Scottish name of many raspberry varieties is testament to the fact that they thrive in the cooler northern climate. Although they need a structure of posts and wires for support, once that has been set up raspberries are easy to grow, crop well and a long season of cropping can be achieved by choice of varieties. Raspberries are an excellent addition to the fruit garden or allotment. Click here for a guide to choosing raspberry canes.
