Raspberry Canes Planted

Back in November 2007 I received some raspberry canes as a gift from my cousin and his wife as a thank you for letting them stay with us in the Summer when they were over from Australia.

We planted the canes and added some straw on top of the soil to help retain moisture, keep the weeds down and to warm the soil.

I am looking forward to lovely raspberries in the Summer, so thank you Derek, Suzie and Charlotte, a very thoughtful gift that will be much enjoyed. They are a welcome addition to our flood damaged veg garden.
