Boysenberry Growing and Maintenance Tips

Prefers full sun with average to dry, well-drained soils. Do not plant in soils with potatos and tomatoes as they may have left behind soil borne verticillium  wilt. Plant boysenberries with the crown of the plant 5cm below the soil line. Fruits grow off of 2nd year canes.
