I find your website useful and easy to us. I also enjoy your changing ads. in papers and mags. On Saturday at the Garden Organic AGM Professor Ian Lang, talking about Food Security urged us all to grow more fruit. He pointed out that in Britain we produce a mere 5% of the fruit we eat, and we should consume 9 a day not just 5 a day fruit and veg. Last November I planted your Polka raspberries. They are now strong tall vigorous canes, tallest I have ever grown and producing throughout the summer. I'll need steps to pick the late ones!! My first purchase from you was before the web, shrub roses for my allotment for the vit. C. Enjoyed your family history.

The most exciting new hybridberry for many years; a tayberry without spines.
'Buckingham' is virtually identical in every respect to the original Tayberry except for its spinelessness, and produces consistently high yields of dark red conical fruits that can be up to 2" (5cm) in length. Fruits are best eaten when they have matured past red to a purple colour.
Being later to flower, there is less chance of reduced fruit set / fruit damage in cold years - particularly useful fro Northern gardeners.
