Raspberry Planting Instructions
Raspberries can be a challenging crop. While they are adaptive to a wide range of soil types, great care must be taken to make sure that their roots do not stay too wet.
Raspberries are self-pollinating, so single varieties can be planted together, however raspberry bushes should not be planted where other vegetable or fruit plants have been previously grown, and not within 300 feet from other raspberry varieties.
Raspberry plants, especially those of the everbearing variety, will likely need some sort of trellis support. Generally a T trellis, approximately 3-4 feet high and 2-3 feet wide will be sufficient.
Raspberries, and all bareroot selections, should be planted as immediately as possible upon arrival.
When unpacking, carefully trim any roots that may have broken in transit and soak in water for 3-6 hours to fully hydrate before planting. To set plants, dig a hole large enough to fully spread out the root system without bending or crowding. Carefully shovel dirt back into the hole and water thoroughly.
Raspberries have a relatively shallow root system so moisture needs to be near the surface. A diluted liquid nitrogen fertilizer can be used when planting, however take care to keep fertilizer several inches away from the base of the plant to avoid burning the roots. Mulching with organic material in the first year after planting is advised however should not be necessary in following years. It is important to keep new planting moist during establishment; however care should be taken to make sure they are well drained and not soggy. Raspberry plants do not appreciate wet feet. 1-2 inches of water per week during growing season should be adequate, however watering should be increased up to 4 inches per week during harvest.
Raspberry plants will require pruning. In the first year to promote two seasonal crops, primocanes, or first year canes, should not be pruned.
For fall bearing varieties, all canes should be mowed to 2-3 inches in late fall or winter, after the harvest season. After the second harvest season, all varieties should be pruned annually in late fall, after harvest is complete.
