I don't normally do this (perhaps I should!) but I wanted to let you know how pleased I was with the fruit bushes,etc. They arrived this morning and after undoing the excellent packing I was impressed with how strong and healthy the plants were. I have spent a very pleasant spring day heeling everything in. So thanks once again for your prompt and efficient service - I look forward to my first crop of soft fruit this summer and for many years to come!! Regards, Lynn Cadman

'Autumn Bliss' was the first primocane variety to crop from mid August through to the first frosts in October, providing a useful overlap with such varieties as 'Tulameen'.
Heavy cropping, its most productive month is September. Fruit is medium sized, typically 3.3 grams in weight, mid to dark red with a pleasant flavour and good keeping qualities. Fruit size is maintained well throughout the Season
The short, erect, spiny canes of this variety need only the minimum of support. 'Autumn Bliss' is resistant to root rot.
Recommended by the RHS to be an excellent attractant and nectar source for bees and other beneficial insects.
