Raspberries are a beloved summer treat, delicious fresh off the vine, in pies and jams, or even frozen for a refreshing treat! Having your own bush secures a steady supply all summer long, and not to mention it serves as an attractive accent in your garden. The foliage is a bright, emerald green, which makes it stand out.
Raspberry care can be specific, but it is easy once you get the hang of it. They prefer a sandy, loamy soil, that is rich in organic matter- which can be achieved by adding in organic compost or manure. They thrive in full sun, and should be planted in an area with 6 to 8 hours of direct sun a day.
