Raspberry plants usually will thrive in an environment that experiences cool
summers with very little rain during the harvesting season, and mild
winters. But do not despair if you live in a climate that experiences cold
winters, you will be able to begin growing raspberries. There are winter
hardy varieties that will do very well in a climate with cold winters.
Before you begin growing raspberries, you must locate a space in your yard
or garden. Be sure to pick a space for your raspberry plant or plants that
will allow them to have full sun for the majority of the day. Raspberry
plants will live in a partially shady area; however, you will have a larger
harvest in a sunnier environment.
Raspberry plants do not like a lot of water. When growing raspberries be
sure that you plant them in an area that has proper drainage. If a raspberry
bush is in an area with poor drainage, the plant will die a slow death from
lack of oxygen or will be susceptible to root diseases.
By growing raspberries in a sunny area, that has proper drainage you will be
sure that you have chosen an excellent space for your plants to thrive. Soon
you will be able to harvest red, juicy raspberries to enjoy fresh or in jams
and jellies or in a variety of baked goodies.
