Growing Raspberries In Your Garden

Raspberries are on the list of my favorite berries. I love eating them fresh or with some yogurt as a snack or dessert. They are very tasty and I understand they are loaded with healthy nutrients such as fibre, vitamins and antioxidants.

In order to be successful growing your own raspberries, select a variety that grows well in your area and make sure you support your plants with trellises. They are many varities to choose from which come in different sizes and colors. Everbearing varieties will provide fruit all season long, summer bearing varieties will only fruit for a month.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

Clear an area 10 x 22 feet, and space your rows at least 4 feet apart. The ideal soil pH is about 6.0. Build raised beds staying away from areas that you recently had tomatoes, peppers, or potatoes to prevent verticillum wilt. Raspberry canes multiply fast.

The best time to plant is in early spring. Soak your canes in vitamin B1 growth stimulant for at least 6 hours right before planting them. Plant in holes a foot deep and wide. Lay manure or fertilizer on bottom, then a little water before placing your raspberry plant. Cover with soil, then more manure and a layer of mulch on the very top.

Prune any older canes and keep the plants wet in summer and dry during the winter. The best way to water them is using a drip irrigation system. However you can also just use a soaker hose for one or two hours weekly. Everbearing raspberries, will need to be picked continuously. Freeze any excess raspberries, and enjoy them in winter.
