SUN is the main ingredient for berry sweetness. Berries need a minimum of 6-8 hours (raspberries and blueberries prefer some afternoon shade in hotter inland areas).
WATER: Keep plants regularly watered. Water is what makes them juicy!
PLANTING & FEEDING Use E.B. Stone Organics Azalea, Camellia & Gardenia Mix for planting (use it straight from the bag!) and E.B. Stone Organics Fruit Berry & Vine Food or Azalea, Camellia & Gardenia food every 4-6 weeks once blossoms appear.
Our tips for success:
- Raspberries fruit on 2 year old wood. Prune out older canes after harvest to promote fresh growth.
- Plant 6 strawberry plants for everyone in the family. The sweetest fruit develops with the most sun!!
- Blueberries like a more acidic soil. Supplement in spring and fall with F.S.T to maintain proper pH.
