Our selection of raspberry canes have been carefully chosen for their good flavour and will fruit for ten to twelve years before they need to be replaced.
Certainly looks better than wooden posts. I ended up concreting the vertical posts in with postcrete as first one came loose whilst adjusting the second one, not much concrete required. I did also have to shorten the second horizontal rail, not too difficult using the offcut to redrill the holes at the end.
Found that our wooden supports rotted very quickly and needed a more sturdy replacement. Good quality product and provided you had two people the assembly was not difficult. Would be more difficult if you need to cut the length down. Will see how it goes this season but looks sturdy and effective. Just thought it a little expensive...but seems to dd the job.
Easy to set up. Have a Mallet and spirit level handy. Full 6M length was fine for my needs and the frame fitted together well, no issues with the bolt holes as described by other people. I replaced the supplied string with 2mm stainless steel rope cable which makes it more secure and also used the same wire to anchor down the main frame supports for added protection against the weather.
What The Press Say
Raspberry planting season is just ahead of us, so now is a good time to think about how you'll support and protect your cane fruit. Harrod Horticultural has a Raspberry Protection and Support Frame with height adjustable supporting uprights in powder-coated, galvanised steel and the option of heavy-duty, anti-bird netting.

If space is tight, have a look at a small fruit cage just big enough to cover one row of fruit from Harrod Horticultural.
