Planting instructions: These raspberries prefer a deep, well-drained, fertile soil and typically bear fruit on first-year wood. Space 30 inches in a row with 8'-10' between rows. Create a simple T trellis at about knee height with a top 1 1/2 feet wide to support the canes. This can be made using rebar or wood, with twine or wire strung down each side of the row. They thrive in most soil types. Your plants require 1 inch of water per week during the growing season and regular, shallow cultivation.
