One of the exciting things about getting a plot which has been cultivated previously is discovering what’s there. When I got the plot there were a number of raspberry canes. I wasn’t sure what type they were until I made a closer inspection. I found a couple of broken labels but was able to decipher that for definite two of the varieties were ‘All Gold’ and ‘Autumn Treasure’. I think that there are more than two varieties; however at least I know two of them. 

Yesterday I spent some time digging up the canes which had begun to take over various other parts of the plot due to the raspberry’s invasive nature! I ended up with quite a pile, but have a friend who wants some on his plot so they will go to a good home.
