Care Information

 

Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Feed with a commercial fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. Train one-year-old canes on trellis, prune canes that have fruited.

 

Design Ideas

 

Plant this tasty berry near a fence, wall or wherever you can provide plenty of support and room for its fruit-laden, thornless canes. Grow as a freestanding shrub in a large garden bed and stake canes. This berry is an excellent addition to the fruit and kitchen garden.

Planting Instructions:

Dig hole twice as wide and just as deep as the root ball. Place the plant into the new hole making sure that the top of the root ball is level with existing soil line.  Fill in the hole, using planting mix  at a ratio of  2 shovels native soil to 1 shovel planting mix (pack down soil around the root ball so that your soil doesn't settle). With extra soil make a well around the plant to retain water. Don't forget the Seaweed Extract, mix in 1 and ¼ ounces of extract to 1 gallon of water pour around base of plant.   In three weeks retreat with Seaweed Extract.   

 

Fertilizing During The Season:

 

You will want to fertilize in April, June, and September, we suggest Yum Yum  its a great organic fertilizer designed for our soil.  Don't forget to use a winterizer in November and January to help promote vigorous root systems.
