    I've just bought some online from JP Parker - 30 for £19.99 plus £3 delivery. You get three different types one being yellow!

    The fruit bushes at Lidl are £1.49 but are going to be 4 for £5.
    Liverpool is one of the wonders of Britain,
    What it may grow to in time, I know not what.

    This time of year your local allotmenteers will be digging them out and composting them - they spring up everywhere. We dug out 15 last weekend. So if you are really moneysaving, ask on freecycle if any allotmenteers have any that need digging out, then take a space and go get them!
    I spent the morning Thinning my "Autumn Bliss" and shareing them with lottie neighbours so an ask on freecycle is a good idea.

    I gave some away recently on freegle, so it may be worth putting a request on your local site.

    Always remember that with fruit and veg, its all about the variety and quality. Make sure you know what varieties you are buying and what to expect from them. Canes from discount retailers are usually pretty weedy and will take a few years before they produce much. Canes from a good garden centre will be much stronger and produce more fruit sooner. They will be more expensive from a GC but the difference will soon be re-couped by more and better rasps. Imho cheap is seldom a sound investment. But you pays your money...
