Planting Instructions
  • Thoroughly hydrate the plant by submersing the root zone in a container of water for 10 minutes while you prepare for planting.
  • Prepare the root ball for planting by gently disturbing the surface roots with your fingers, fork, or gardening tool and pruning any damaged roots. This will encourage the roots to begin growing outward into the new soil.
  • Dig a hole twice as deep and twice as wide as the plant's root ball. Partially backfill the hole with soil and place the plant into the hole. The top of the root ball should be level with the ground surrounding the hole. Refill the hole with soil, firming the soil around the plant with your fingers. Check to be sure the plant is not planted too deeply. If it is, raise the plant carefully and re-firm the soil.
  • Water thoroughly.

Continuing Care
  • Apply a 2" to 4" layer of shredded bark, compost, leaves, straw or other organic matter around your plants to promote moisture retention, maintain even soil temperatures and discourage weed growth. Replenish the mulch as needed.
  • Adequate and consistent watering is essential during your plant's first year in the garden. Infrequent, long soakings of water that thoroughly saturate the soil are more effective than frequent, light applications of water.
  • Do not allow the soil or the original root ball to completely dry out. During the first summer, you may need to water as often as every few days in periods of drought and extreme summer heat. To determine if your plant needs water, dig a few inches into the soil next to the plant. If the soil is dry 2" to 3" below the surface, it is time to water.
  • Overwatering can be as damaging as under watering. Be sure that the area surrounding your plant has adequate drainage to move water away from the plant. If you choose to plant in a container, always select one with drainage holes to prevent your plant's roots from sitting in water.
  • Keep the area around your plants free of weeds. Weeds compete with surrounding plants for food, water and light. Walk around the garden periodically and pull weeds, including the roots, as soon as you see them.
  • Feed your plants once every 2 to 3 weeks during the growing season with a water-soluble fertilizer.
  • Pick blackberries when the fruits have changed from red to black but still feel firm. Raspberries are ready to harvest when they have changed from green to red. When ripe, the berries should easily detach from the plant. Harvesting early in the morning while the weather is cool helps prolong the shelf life of the berries. After picking, store the berries in a refrigerator and do not wash them until you are ready to use them. The sweet, nutritious berries can be eaten fresh, preserved or used for cooking. Do not consume any other part of the plants.
  • Blackberries and raspberries send up new shoots called primocanes each year. The second year these canes are called floricanes. Everbearing varieties produce fruit on both primocanes and floricanes.
  • Floricanes gradually die after fruiting, therefore old floricanes should be pruned off and removed from the garden after they have finished fruiting. 
  • New primocanes should be pruned back in the summer to a height of 3' to 4'. This forces the plants to grow side branches which will bear the next year's crop. Pruning the primocanes in the summer also helps promote self-supporting plants and encourages lateral branch development, increasing fruit production in the following year.
  • Before new growth begins each spring, select four to six canes per linear foot of area for fruiting wood and cut lateral branches back to about 12".

Winterizing Instructions
  • Watering thoroughly in late fall will greatly enhance your plant's cold tolerance once the ground has frozen.
  • Blackberries and raspberries should be winterized in late fall. In extremely cold areas, canes can be tied together and wrapped in burlap. Keep in mind that the root system is the most vulnerable to cold damage. Mulch heavily by mounding a 6" to 8" layer of loose soil, shredded bark, compost, leaves, straw or other organic material around the base of each plant.
  • In very cold areas, containerized plants can be brought into an unheated, protected area such as a garage or cellar before temperatures drop below freezing. Check soil moisture every 2 to 3 weeks and water as needed during winter. 
  • In spring, remove mounded soil or mulch from in-ground plantings. Containerized plants should be moved back out into the garden sunlight where they will begin to repeat their yearly garden performance.
