Prepare a sturdy frame of wires against a wall or on posts. Plant with the crown 8cm (3") below soil level and apply a thick mulch. Cut the stems to a strong bud
Our Garden Planner can produce a personalised calendar of when to sow, plant and harvest for your area.

Notes

After harvesting, cut 2 year old branches to ground level. Healthy loganberries will bear for ten to fifteen years or more.

Harvesting

Pick when ripe. Loganberries do not ripen all at once, and should be picked weekly through the harvest season.

Troubleshooting

Net to prevent bird damage. Plant a thornless variety to take the pain out of harvesting.
