Do raspberries need winter protection?

Winter protection only for newly planted raspberries

If you have planted a new row of raspberries or a raspberry hedge in autumn, you should cover the young plants over the winter.

The following are suitable for this:

  • Mulch cover
  • Fir branches
  • straw
  • Protective fleece

Winter protection for raspberries in the pot

Raspberries in the tub tend to suffer from the cold, as the earth in the pot freezes through much faster. Therefore, protect it with foil or other suitable materials.

Place the bucket against a sheltered wall and don't forget to water the plants occasionally.

Tips & Tricks

Foliage is an ideal cover for beds of all kinds in winter. But only use leaves from healthy trees to protect your newly planted raspberries from frost.
