Spring is the perfect time for you to plant berries in your own home or garden. We have a great selection right now from blackberries, like triple crown, and of course everybody’s favorite, marionberries. One thing to remember is that blackberries produce on second-year canes, which means we’re going to grow big, beautiful canes.
This summer, you’ll raise them up on a trellis, and that’s what’s going to give you berries the following summer. Raspberries are a little different. Again, they produce on second-year canes, but raspberries can be more of a bush, so you don’t need a trellis. Heritage is one of Brian’s favorite varieties because you get two seasons of fruit, once in the spring and again in the fall.
When you plant them using Bio-tone, that helps get those roots started. Then follow it up a little bit later with some Berry-tone to get those nice big canes for lots of fruit. We have all of these right now at the farm, and now is the perfect time to plant them. Come on out. We look forward to seeing you soon!
