Mid season thornless variety. Generous cropper of medium to large sized fruit with excellent flavour. Due to its compact growth, Merton is an ideal variety for planting in small gardens and the short thornfree canes make maintenance simple. For best results, plant in half shade or full sun although Merton will tolerate shade and soil with less than efficient drainage. Hardy but can be vulnerable to hard frosts on very exposed sites. Eventual height: 2.5m (8ft). Eventual spread: 7m (23ft). Cropping season: August/September. Self fertile.

Plant 3m (10ft) apart in rows.

Best grown against a fence or wall for support in well-drained but moist, fertile soil in full sun or partial shade.

Planting:
Soak the root-ball before planting. Plant in a hole twice the diameter of the root-ball or pot. Mix an organic soil improver and general fertiliser with the infill soil. Water regularly until established.

After Care:
Fruit is produced on the previous year's stems. Tie in the new shoot - these will flower and fruit in the second year. Cut away the older stems and replace them with new vigorous shoots. Cut back damaged shoots in late winter and apply a general fertiliser.
