That raspberry plants get yellow leaves is basically not a question but a statement. And it is relatively unimportant whether it is at a hobby gardener's home, during the production of pot/container plants, in our variety garden or even at our breeding facility. But as diverse as the individual raspberry varieties are, so versatile are the causes of the yellow leaves. And there is not always a serious disease behind it; it can also be a completely natural physiological effect. In the...Read more
One of the previous articles dealt, among other things, with the number of complaints about raspberry plants. What if the end consumer, i.e. the home gardener, comes to your company to complain about raspberry plants that did not grow well? We have compiled the most important questions and answers on the subject of raspberry plants for you. These are not so much cultivation tips for the production and cultivation of raspberry plants, but rather tips and tricks for the end consumer, which you are...Read more
The past years have already indicated it and this year's “Corona spring” has confirmed it: the demand for 'edibles' – plants with edible parts – continues. Especially in this special year, there were phases in which the hunger for edible plants could hardly be satisfied, or in some cases not at all. Raspberries were particularly affected by these supply shortages, as they were hardly available, especially at the end of spring/beginning of summer. How could one...Read more
Every producer of raspberry plants knows this: there are complaints from end consumers and, based on these, also from retail outlets. Raspberries are among the plants for which a certain rate of complaints can be expected, even if one has completely fulfilled one's task as a young plant producer and of course as a plant producer. What is behind this phenomenon? When is the main complaint made, and could this not also be used as a sales argument? We have analysed and evaluated the complaints...Read more
In particular in these special days, when the trade and sale of plants in Germany and Europe is subject to considerable restrictions, some plant producers will probably be worried whether their already produced and ready-for-sale plant stocks can be delivered completely and if so, at what time this will happen. However, apart from the current crisis, it can always happen that plant stocks cannot be completely cleared. As gardeners, we are still very dependent on the weather, despite an...Read more
The salmonberry, botanically Rubus spectabilis, is a species originating from western North America with strikingly large and bright pink flowers. With its very special show of flowers and the edible raspberry-like fruits, the salmonberry offers real added value in any garden. That is why we have decided to include the following varieties in our range.
Raspberries with added value – salmonberry young plants
The natural distribution area of salmonberries is the Pacific coast of North America. Here...Read more
As in so many industries and areas of everyday life, the trend is moving towards more online-based advertising and paperless communication. However, at the moment, we do not want to do without print media entirely. Last autumn, for example, we were already able to present our current young plant catalogue for 2020. Many of you have already received the printed version and at the same time our young plant catalogue is also available at luberaedibles.com in the download area.

A few months ago, by analysing the strawberry sales figures of our sister company Lubera, we tried to give some indications of a standard distribution of strawberry types (white flowering, red flowering, June bearing and everbearing, etc.). We are testing the same again with raspberries and blackberries in order to give you an overview of the demand. The corresponding figures can then serve as a reference point for your own assortment planning, as they are based on real sales figures. Of course...Read more
For optimum raspberry plant production and therefore also for a high-quality end product, it is of course not only the young plants, the right time and the ideal height when pruning raspberries that are responsible... The decisive factors are substrate and fertilisation.
It depends on the right substrate
The substrate used in the raspberry plant production has a not to be underestimated influence on the later plant quality. When it comes to the substrate, it does not necessarily depend on which...Read more
The questions pertaining to raspberry pruning are some of the most popular enquiries from hobby gardeners. When do I have to prune my raspberries? Which shoots have to go, which must stay? And what do I have to do with the autumn raspberries?
Interestingly, the question about when to correctly prune raspberries is crucial before, namely during the production of sales plants. If single shoots are okay for a small plant with a pot size of up to 1 L or a diameter of 12 cm, then larger pots with a...Read more
