Buy framberry 'Red Dream' framberry Red Dream: A new taste sensation!

This plant is semi-evergreen, so it can lose some of its leaves in winter. In colder regions or more exposed gardens, it may lose them all, but then fresh new foliage appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: any soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    A breakthrough in breeding has created this amazing new fruit. It looks like a strawberry, but it tastes like a cross between a strawberry and a raspberry.....your taste buds wont believe it!

  • Garden care: Prepare the ground well before planting. Clear all the weeds and dig in lots of well-rotted manure. When planting out, space the plants at 45cm intervals with 75cm between each row and apply a generous layer of mulch around the base of the plants, being careful to avoid the crown. If training onto a support, tie them in as they start to grow and keep the runners off the ground. If you want to grow them in the more conventional way and let them trail along the ground, then put a thick layer of straw or use strawberry mats under the plants to stop the fruit touching the soil when they are starting to form. Sheets of black plastic mulch can also be used, and it will also help retain soil moisture, reduce weeds and encourage early cropping. These plants are self fertile, however you often get a bigger crop if they are planted near strawberries.

I bought the framberry plants last spring & potted them on in the greenhouse for a while before finally planting them out in a strawberry tower. They fruited heavily & the fruits were delicious. In autumn they sent out runners galore which I potted & overwintered in the greenhouse. I will share these with my fellow allotmenteers, they are too good to not share with friends!

Plant was dispatched after 2 weeks like I was advised. It arrived within a few days of being dispatched. The plant itself looks healthy, nice bright strong green leaves, a good size and strong roots. It was packaged extremely carefully meaning it arrived in perfect condition and the soil was damp so it didn't suffer in the hot weather! It's all repotted now so fingers crossed for lots of yummy berries! I can't wait to find out if they actually have a hint of raspberry to them!

Can you grow them in a container?

Ella

Yes, provided they are kept well fed and watered, these tend to do very well in pots.

Which plants need cloching?

Frost tender plants can be encouraged to grow far more quickly under cloches and one group of plants, the cucurbits, benefit from the extra warmth overnight. This allows them to photosynthesise for longer and squash, courgette and outdoor cucumber plants
