New raspberries for the new year

Standard

I finally convinced my slughunter to help me with building a support for my new raspberry canes. They are made from old loft rafters taken out of the neighbours house when they had an extension put in.


Some wire guide lines and 15 new rapsberry plants and I am a tired and happy allotmenteer. Next for some more weeding before I can really start going for the season. 

This time I brought my canes by mail order instead of taking some from my garden as they have some sort of virus that turns the leaves black at the end of the season, and I wouldnt want to spread it through my allotment. I have also replaced my strawberries this year, and my leeks are growing well in the propogator.
