For healthy, homegrown berries that just won't quit, grow Polana Raspberry (Rubus idaeus 'Polana'). You'll get two crops a year!
This special variety has a unique season of harvest. They are very prolific, and you'll enjoy a late spring crop of red berries on the old canes. Then in early fall, pick your large harvest from the new canes that grew this season.
The fall harvest comes early, ripening weeks earlier than the beloved Heritage variety. Include Polana in your Raspberry patch, and you won't have to wait long between crops.
Polana is a speedy producer of delicious, red fruit that develops quickly from flower to finished. Your main crop will be ripe for picking very early in the fall growing season.
Even new gardeners have success with these vigorous plants. Originally developed in Poland, Polana has strong canes that don't grow as high as other varieties. They'll fit right into your Edible Landscape!
You'll get fruit from a single plant, as Polana Raspberry is self-pollinating. But why not extend your season of harvest with additional everbearing varieties, such as Polka, Heritage, Anne and Joan J?

Raspberry plants themselves are quite charming. You can easily add a row or block along the back of your garden beds.
Do you know how many people across the United States are waking up to the realization that it is easy and fun to grow food at home? Look for your neighbors to start adding small fruits to their sunny spots.
Frankly, the days of the enormous, uninterrupted front lawn are numbered. Edible Landscaping is a huge garden design trend that is here to stay.
Polana Raspberry needs full sun for the best fruit set. It appreciates at least 6 hours of direct sunlight, and should be planted away from structures for proper air circulation.
Especially during fruit production, Raspberries require a moderate amount of water on a regular basis. Apply a three-inch layer of mulch over the roots to cut down on surface evaporation.
When planting, you can even create a tiny hill, or berm to help keep water near the roots of your plant. Raspberries do love regular water.
Create a raised bed with handfuls of organic matter incorporated into the soil. Be sure to add Nature Hills Root Booster to the top few inches of soil to support your plant's absorption of water and nutrients.
Prune everbearing Raspberries after the first year. Leave the plant alone during the first season.
Starting the second year, in spring. You'll select 6 of the best new canes and trim them back with a 45-degree angled cut. Remove the weak, spindly new growth completely.
Harvest your first crop from the old canes in late spring. Once harvest is done, remove old canes and place them in your yard waste bin.
In mid-spring and early summer, apply a slow-release fertilizer according to directions. This heavy feeder would also like a top-dressing of compost every other year.
Order from Nature Hills for a commercial-grade plant. Polana is a wonderful investment in your future. Share your healthy, great-tasting homegrown fruit with family and friends!
