While we don't like to play favorites, this summer-bearing Raspberry has a special place in our hearts, along with other gardeners lucky enough to grow it over the past sixty years! The Boyne Raspberry (Rubus idaeus 'Boyne') consistently produces ruby-red berries that shine brightly on canes that do not require staking, despite the over-abundance of berries they hold.

Heavy-producing and cold-hardy! The floricane Boyne Raspberry hails from Canada and has been one of the most popular varieties among home gardeners in the northwest U.S. It thrives in spite of the cold and comes back in spring ready to bear a large crop of brilliant berries. Your bees and butterflies will be grateful for the drifts of white, rose-like flowers in the spring and happily pollinate your bush!

This boisterous berry ripens in early summer and tastes amazing. Each medium-sized berry is remarkably sweet and aromatic. You may consider using bird netting since these bushes not only provide excellent shelter and nesting sites for songbirds, but they swoop in to eat the fruit as well! Luckily, the Boyne Raspberry produces a lot of berries. You will have enough for pies, preserves, salads, desserts, and whatever else you may want to try. After going through your recipe book, you will have plenty to freeze for use later too (plus enough to share with your feathered friends)!

Planting and Application:

Why doesn't the Boyne Raspberry need to be staked? It has dwarf canes that don't get too long to hold themselves up. Don't let any yard space go to waste. Plant these highly productive berries along your fence line or at the edge of an impenetrable wooded area. Use groupings of Raspberries for increased productivity and pollination, or a single specimen of these self-pollinating bushes! Great in a cottage garden as a backdrop or casting a bit of shade in the herb and veggie garden!

The space-saving size and upright growth makes Boyne perfect to use as linear berry orchard additions! Create hedges and privacy around your property without worrying about trespassers of both the two and four-legged kind! Growing 4-6 feet tall and 3-4 feet wide, these flowering and fruiting ornamental bushes are perfect for double-duty edible landscaping in any sunny location you have on your property!

  • Large Deep Red Berries
  • Early Summer Ripening Floricanes

#ProPlantTips for Care:

The Boyne Raspberry thrives in full sun or partial shade - the more sun the more fruit! Plant your berry bush in a well-drained, enriched site with a 3-4 inch layer of arborist mulch chips to hold in moisture and insulate the roots. Provide new shrubs with consistent moisture, then supplemental moisture throughout fruiting and summer for established plants. The Boyne Raspberry may be a top performer when it comes to its berry production, but it also boasts superb disease resistance too!

Pruning Floricane Raspberries

After harvest, cut back older canes to the ground and dream of your impending harvest next year. Remove the canes completely after they have fruited over their entire length to encourage the production of new canes.

  • Full Sun & Partial Shade
  • Enriched Well-Drained Soil & Moderate Moisture Needs
  • Self-Pollinating - More Berries With Another Bush
  • No Staking Needed! Prune Floricanes After Fruiting
  • 600-800 Chill Hours

This early-ripening Raspberry is ready for a special spot in your garden and heart. Don't miss out on becoming the Raspberry baron in your neighborhood! Order your Boyne Raspberry now from!
