Planting Information

Just imagine stepping out of your back door in the cool summer morning hours, plucking a bowlful of luscious berries to top off your cereal or pancakes. Sounds good? Well it is so easy to achieve! All they need is full sun, enriched well-drained soil with a pH of 5.5-6.5, and mulch.

Upright brambles should be planted 2-3 ft. apart in rows, place two slow release Grape-Berry Agriform tablets, water thoroughly and mulch heavily.  When planting, protect roots from sunlight and keep moist. As suckers come up, the row should fill in to be 2 feet wide. Little to no support is needed, depending on variety. To promote a strong plant, keep the tips of the canes cut at 45 inches in height beginning in early June. For blackberries, remove the older canes after harvesting the crop. For Everbearing raspberries, mow all canes down to 2-3 inches in the winter to save pruning and prevent diseases..

Trailing brambles should be 8-10 ft. apart on trellises. When planting, protect roots from sunlight and keep moist. The crown should be planted no more that 1/2" below the ground level. Place two slow release Grape-Berry Agriform tablets, water thoroughly and mulch heavily. Water plants weekly during dry spells. Everbearing raspberries produce on current year's growth, so they may be mowed to 2" in winter. For trailing brambles, pruning consists of removing all older canes after they have fruited.
