Soil:

Well-draining, slightly acidic soil that is rich in organic matter. A balanced fertilizer may be used in the spring.

Lighting:

Raspberry plants prefer sun, mostly indirect if possible to avoid burning. If in a location where the temperatures are regularly in the 80’s, place the plant in part shade.

Water:

Water consistently each week during the growing season. Water only the soil, not the leaves. We recommend using Distilled, Reverse Osmosis, or Rainwater.

A moisture meter is a useful tool as Raspberry plants are often overwatered. 

Other Tips:

  • Self-Pollinating. However, cross-pollination with another plant of the same variety or another blueberry plant that has the same growing season is recommended to produce larger crops.
  • Everbearing Raspberry varieties produce fruit in the fall. Once the fruit has been harvested, prune back the plant for the winter. 
  • “Chill Hours” are when the temperature is between 32-45℉.  The Raspberry  bush needs to meet its minimum requirement of chill hours in order to produce fruit & leaves correctly. Most Raspberry varieties need at least 800 hour of chill hours during the winter.
  • It is recommended to slowly acclimate your Raspberry plant to the new temperatures, wind, and sunlight that it may encounter.
