How To Plant Willamette Red Raspberry
Plant your Red Raspberries in fertile, well-drained soil so they aren't constantly submerged in water. They perform best in full sun and plenty of water when blossoms begin.
How To Water
It is important to deeply water your Red Raspberries regularly during its first growing season.
How To Fertilize
Incorporate Elements Starter Plant Food granular form into the soil when planting. If planting in spring or summer, start fertilizing late fall using Elements Starter Plant Food granular form on an annual basis each fall. If planting in the fall, use Elements fertilizer while planting and start your regular annual fertilizing the following fall. Continue this for the first three years to get your plant well established as it gives your tree the nutrients it needs to produce lush new growth for the following spring.
How To Prune
These raspberry bushes will produce on their second year, so after your first harvest, prune away the older canes so the newer ones can grow no issue.
