Berry Orders are in!

Breadcrumb Navigation

The berries have been ordered and will arrive sometime in April.  I had to shop around a little bit to find the varieties I wanted at the best price. I’m planting most of the raspberries a little thicker than usual to help them pre-fill the rows.

I got a great book on berry growing (of all sorts) called the Berry Grower’s Companion. This book offers several interesting techniques for trellising the canes other than the standard in-a-line and mixed cane T method, her illustrations show a t system where primocanes are kept in the center, while florocanes are helt out on the t-bar wires for easier harvesting. I think I’ll stick to the simple mixed t-bar method, but its fascinating to see the wide variety of developed options.
