Planting & Care

Raspberries require rich, well-mulched soil that drains well. Adjust pH to 5.6 - 6.2 with the use of an acid fertilizer, sulfur, or aluminum sulfate according to label instructions. Liberal amounts of an acid type compost such as one formulated for Azaleas / Camellias / Rhododendrons mixed with the native soil will help create the proper environment. Never use animal manures with acid plants. Raspberries like sun with afternoon shade in hot climates. Protect the roots from drying out by watering regularly and mulching. Raspberries can produce canes up to 10', so provide a strong trellis.
