An easy to grow, abundant producer, raspberries and blackberries are a wonderful choice for most any gardener looking to incorporate perennial fruits into their landscape. Plants are typically thorny (though many varieties we carry are thornless!), producing woody stalks with a dense canopy of textured green leaves.

Blackberries and raspberries perform best in full sun with moist, well-drained soil. Plants are prone to rot in overly wet soil, but will have reduced yield in sandy soils and require supplemental moisture during dry spells. Providing adequate sun and air flow will reduce presence of moisture on leaves, preventing mildew and other issues.

Some varieties produce fruit on first year growth (primocane or everbearing), while others produce on second year growth (floricane or summer bearing). Ask our garden center experts for more information to know how to best prune your plant for a bountiful harvest.
