Want sweet & juicy berries? There are 3 requirements:

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.
