R is for rubus

Rubus is the latin name of the two brambles here: Rubus fruticocis is the blackberry bramble; and we’ve a raspberry. The blackberry wasn’t planted by anyone I know but its annual growth has to be considered every time I want to cut back the climbing roses.

The raspberry was technically planted in a sensible place (on the sunny wall) but again because it’s sharing root space and sunlight with older planting (in this case, trees), we won’t be launching into the breakfast foods/jam market anytime soon.
