You’ll plant raspberries in permeable, loose, lightly acidic soil with ~ pH 6. You can plant them from October to April, but it’s better to do it in autumn to give the seedlings enough time to develop their roots and yield more, starting from the next June. You’ll know that raspberries are ripe when they are easily removed from the receptacle. Their number will rise until the third year of the bush, which will live for an average of 10 years. Everbearing types don’t require a support, whereas you’ll want to support high varieties with two wires spread across a trellis 0.8 m high. Water them during summer days, prune in May, smother the weeds and fertilize.
