This Loganberry bush produces long, juicy, dark red berries that are a cross between a raspberry and a blackberry. The Loganberry is self fertile and so only one plant is required for pollination purposes. The fruit has a good, sweet flavour and can be used in baking or eaten fresh

Loganberries Planting distances Space between plants min 6 ft Space between rows min 6 ft Planting Loganberries Loganberries aren?t fussy about their position; they will tolerate partial shade and will also do fine in soils with less than desirable drainage. Try to choose a spot that hasn?t grown blackberries or raspberries for about 3 years. Dig a trench 18 inches wide and 9 inches deep removing all weeds. Spread a bucket full of compost or well rotted manure along the trench every 3 feet or so and fork it in, loosening the soil in the bottom of the trench. Once the soil in the trench is reconsolidated you can add some Growmore, sprinkled over the surface. Backfill your planting trench until it is about 3 inches deep. Place your plant in the trench spreading the roots out evenly. You should be able to see a soil mark on the stem which will reveal how deep the plant was planted originally, plant it to the same depth. For potted plants, plant to the same level as the top of the soil of the rootmass. Backfill the hole and tamp down gently. Water in, bare root plants can be left now until the need for seasonal care. Pot grown plants, planted in the summer may need further watering in very dry periods. Initial pruning of Loganberries Cut back each stem to a bud about 1 foot above soil level. Support for Loganberries The easiest support system to use is a post-and-wire system. Using stakes at either end and screw-in vine eyes with galvanised wire create horizontal rows of taught wires approximately 1 foot apart with the first tier being 3 foot above the ground. Train the stems out horizontally as they grow to create a fan-like shape along the wires. Feeding & Mulching Loganberries Apply a general fertiliser such as Growmore around each plant in March. Water this in well and then apply a mulch of well-rotted manure or compost to keep the weeds at bay. Bark chip can also be used for this purpose. Picking & Storage of Loganberries Pick when the fruit is fully coloured. Ideally pick on a dry day as wet fruit will go mouldy quickly. Eat, freeze or use in jams, jellies, pies etc. as soon as possible after picking. Seasonal Care of Loganberries Keep weeds at bay by hand pulling or shallow hoeing. A mulch will also help to keep weeds down whilst retaining moisture and should be applied in March. During any summer long, hot, dry spells water well, especially as the fruit begins to swell. Be sure to water the ground and not the stems to avoid disease. Any unruly canes growing away from the row should be pulled out in March. Pruning of Loganberries In the autumn cut out old canes which have borne fruit to just above ground level. In the spring and summer tie new canes onto the wires. In February prune back any dead shoot tips.
