I’ve just cleared an area of ground, about 6 ft by 3 ft, and want to cover the fence shown ( 6 ft + x 5 ft ) and the fence 3 ft x 5 ft round the corner with something edible if possible. But the area only gets sun in the late afternoon.
I already have a fabulous blackberry bush and wondered if there was something similar but not quite as vigorous I could put here I could put in this small area.

Thornless loganberry? Fan trained Jostaberry?

Thanks O, will look them both up. Never heard of a Jostaberry.

Not Jostaberry, another friend recommends Goji berry but not sure about this. May have to be loganberry - will be down at the local garden centre tomorrow ( but may be the wrong time of year ?

Cordon trained redcurrant - made for the job. Would just fit the space nicely. Love loganberriews but they take more work and more space and I'm getting idle in my old age...

OB, Loganberry would have been my choice. I used to have them from the garden when I was a kid. They are lovely with ice cream but best slightly stewed hot with custard.

Cover it over with membrane and start with edible crops next season which means that you can grow what ever you want.

Goji berries are a waste of time. They rarely fruit well in Britain and the fruit not worth the effort (to me at least).
