for Rasberry Growers:
1. Don't mulch
raspberries, they like warm feet
varieties fruit during summer. Not recommended as much for Southern Alberta as they are subject to winter kill
from the chinook winds.
varieties are fall bearing and produce fruit on the current season's growth. Production begins in mid to late August.
Canes may be mowed or pruned down in March or April each year.
4. Pick raspberries
3 or 4 times a week when ripe
break dormancy early, so plant them as early as possible.
6. For clay
soils add high organic matter
7. The growing
site should have good air circulation for disease prevention.
