Growing raspberries is actually easy and you can enjoy this fruits anytime you want. The gardeners with experience in this matter are recommending several steps for growing healthy raspberries.
When you are choosing what kind of raspberries you want to grow, make sure they are right species that will be able to grow well on the local climate conditions. The area you are going to grow your raspberries needs to be in full sunlight and have an excellent air circulation.
Another requirement is the soil. Since the raspberries need a healthy root system, make sure your soil is rich enough, before you are planting it.
Since they will grow for many years, use a proper fertilizer and don’t forget that the raspberries are perennial plants, which means you will have to check the soil once a month.
Often another important issue is the bed preparing. Make sure you clean all perennial weeds from the area, where you are planning to install the raspberries.
Compost and enrich the soil, before you plant it and the first three years of their growth don’t add other plants near the raspberries area.
Make sure the soil is not drained, for this can damage and ruin their roots.
