How to plant and care for raspberries

How to plant and care for raspberries

Site and aspect

  • The ideal situation for raspberries is a sheltered, sunny site with fertile, humus-rich, free-draining soil, preferably slightly acid to neutral. They will tolerate partial shade, although the fruit won’t be as sweet. 
  • What they won’t tolerate is poor drainage, heavy soils or thin chalky soils.
  • Space the plants around 45-60cm (18in–2ft) apart if planting in rows.
  • Rows should be at least 1.5m apart; 1.8m is better. 
  • Once established, raspberries like to spread, so it’s a good idea to choose a site surrounded by grass, so you can mow off any unwanted suckers
