Blackberry and raspberry bushes are wonderful for the beginner grower. Below we address some common query topics:
- Hardiness: Native to the UK, your blackberry or raspberry plant is well accustomed to the milder climate.
- Position: Planting in full sun is always recommended, however they still tolerate light shade.
- Soil: Soil types can be an unwelcome confusion as many plants will adapt to their conditions. Nonetheless, less than ideal conditions will certainly limit your plantâ€™s growth. Waterlogged soils will starve your plant of oxygen, which plays a key role in photosynthesis; causing its roots to rot and creating an optimal environment for disease.
It is important to regularly water newly-planted bushes, at least bimonthly for two months. You should also ensure adequate spacing (40 - 60cm) between each bush. With bare root plants, you should soak their roots in water for up to 2 hours before planting, while with potted plants, you should drench their rootball.
- If you are planting a bare root plant, dig a hole so their first roots are no more than 2 inches below ground level.
- If you are planting a containerised plant, make sure that the pot sits no lower than an inch below the ground. Please see below for our planting guidance.
- Fill the planting hole with a mix of compost and garden soil, and add fertiliser and mycorrhizal fungi. Take care to not compress the soil. Once you are happy with your efforts, provide your plant with a good watering.
- Add mulch on top (whether bark and wood chippings, compost, manure, leaf-mould, and stones). Try to keep the mulch from touching the stem.
