Plant Information

PLANTING DIRECTIONS:
1. Plant canes 2 feet apart creating hedgerows that are 10 feet apart. Dig a hole two times the width of the root ball in good loose garden soil with a pH of 5.8 to 6.5 amending if necessary.
2. Remove plant from packaging and lightly loosen the bottom of the root ball to release the roots as you set it in place in the hole.
3. Keep the top of the root ball even with soil surface and fill in around the roots. Lightly tamp dirt around your newly planted raspberries.
4. Water well and add additional soil if necessary and water again.
5. Keep weed-free, watered when necessary and pruned regularly to maintain a quality crop. Fertilizer may be applies in early spring before sprouting and again in late May.

HARVEST TIME: Early summer and fall
HABIT: Raspberry canes produce high yields of large fruit with good color, firmness & flavor.

USAGE: Fresh eating, jams and jellies, freezes well, juices, desserts and baking.

PLANTING TIPS: For a summer and fall crop; prune back tall weak canes early in the spring. After the first harvest remove the canes that produced fruit for a second crop in the fall.

    Ordered 2 but only one lived thru the winter. It was an unusually hard winter for this area of the country but was surprised it didn't make it.

    USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

    To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

    • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
    • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
