Autumn Britten Raspberry Growing and Maintenance Tips
Like other fruits, raspberries grow best in a fertile, moist, well-drained soil, in full sun. In its first year, a cane produces only leaves; in its second year, it develops fruit. Once the fruit matures the cane dies and should be cut down to the ground to allow the sun to reach newly emerging canes. A 5 cm layer of mulch applied every fall will aid in maintaining moisture, fertility, and help reduce weeds.
