Imports of fresh berries into the European market from developing countries have doubled over the past five years. Berries are increasingly offered as a convenient and healthy snack, seducing shoppers into buying them. Although many berries are grown in Europe itself, demand is much higher than European production and imports from developing countries are filling in the gap.

Haygrove was founded in 1988 by Angus Davison, and began as a strawberry growing degree project on 1 hectare of rented land in Herefordshire, UK. This original farming business has steadily expanded in geography and techniques to become an all-year-round berry, and long season cherry and organic grower, supplying the best retailers in the UK, Europe, and South Africa. In 1994 they started protecting crops from challenging UK weather.
Visual examples of the different types of trellises used to grow blackberries and raspberries. Includes dimensions and pictures of each type.
Growers use many trellis support systems to support bramble canes. Your trellising goal is to minimize labor and maximize yield. Each trellis type has its advantages and disadvantages, and most can be modified to suit your needs. Evaluate each trellis system to determine what type best suits your needs.
