Sow and Plant
Plant in mid-fall or early winter when it’s not too cold for a little root growth to help them establish.
After harvesting cut the canes down to ground level, leaving any new shoots.
Harvest fruit when ripe. Can protect with netting if birds are eating them but make sure that the plant doesn’t grow through the netting making it difficult to remove.
