Plant Tayberry from late October to March (as long as there are no signs of frost). Make sure the root ball of Tayberry is well-moistened before planting by soaking it in a bucket of lukewarm water. Prepare a suitable hole of 30 x 30 x 30 cm in good, loose soil.
Plant the Rubus loganobaccus at the appropriate depth in the hole - the top of the root ball should be slightly below ground level. Fill the hole with soil and press firmly down. Water immediately after planting. The Tayberry grows well in any type of garden soil and in a sunny area.

Planting and flowering details
Show moreTayberry requires minimal maintenance. An area with full sunlight is best. Fertilization is not recommended, as this shrub grows very well on its own. Give it extra water during dry periods. Pick berries that are entirely one colour, usually in August and September. Eat the fruit immediately, freeze them or use them for jam making.
Growing TayberriesTayberry plants can be planted alone or in rows alongside a fence. Place sturdy poles in the ground with a height of about 2 metres and tie the plant using twine or burlap rope. Plant rows in a north to south direction and plant the Tayberry plants with a spacing of one metre (or more!) apart. New branches will grow each year and their fruits will appear in the following year - these branches will then die. Tie the new branches to the poles, there should be about six branches per bush. In late September, all shoots that have borne fruit can be pruned just above the ground (they are usually brownish). By the end of March, new shoots will appear. Protection from birds is usually required.
