Raspberries grow best in free draining soils, if drainage is poor, grow on a raised bed. It is essential that they are planted in ground that has never grown raspberries or any plant of the genus Rubus before. Pruning is not required at planting time but in subsequent years, remove the canes which have fruited and train in the new canes. Support the canes on posts and wires. Mulch yearly with well rotted compost or manure to retain moisture and suppress weeds. Water well in dry periods, and apply a growmore type fertiliser in the spring.
