When the plants arrive, prepare to plant immediately. Shake off the excess dirt around the root ball before planting. Dig a hole at least double the size of the container to give the root system space to grow. Plants will grow immediately and can grow several inches tall in the first month of planting.
Prune raspberry bushes for diseased or dead canes annually to encourage new growth in early spring.
You can even grow these fruit plants in a container or raised bed. You will have a brand new summer crop bearing variety or raspberry patch growing in no time! These raspberry plants are easy to grow and harvest.
