Growing Blackberries and Raspberries

Sun Dec 27, 2015 9:01 pm

This is how we grow Blackberries and Raspberries:
1. Framed: Since Raspberries will grow pretty much everywhere and are quite invasive, it's a good idea to frame them. We framed them with a home made small raised bed made out of stone and wood. 

2. Trellies: We also made some simple trellies from wood and wires to help keep the Raspberry plants and Blackberry plants where we want them. 

3. Soild and compost: We bought Blackberry plants and moved Raspberry plants from other areas in the garden. We planted them in about 50% soil and 50% compost.

4. Cover up: Then we covered the bed with cloth and finished up with a layer of bark. This will be enough to keep the bed maintanance free (=exactly how we want it to be)..

The Blackberry plants gave us Blackberries just a few weeks after we planted them. They are growing really fast, so hoping for many more berries next year.

Growing Blackberries and Raspberries

I'm kinda curious here, how many of you are growing and processing your own hops on a scale that's useful for homebrewing needs? Right now I have two Cascade plants that are about 4 ft. tall but are about to die back got them in September. Curious about what I might expect for next year.
