Tips for Rasberry Growers:

1.  Don't mulch raspberries, they like warm feet

2.  Floricane varieties fruit during summer.  Not recommended as much for Southern Alberta as they are subject to winter kill from the  chinook winds.

3.  Primocane 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

5.  Raspberries 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.
