Boyne

  • Plant red and black raspberries 3 feet apart in rows and 6 to 10 feet between the rows.  Work soil as deep as possible.  Then level soil again.  Cut off the tops of red raspberries to about 4 inches.  Cut black raspberries to about 2 inches.  Plow a furrow about 3 inches deep and spread roots naturally in the row.  Pack soil firmly around the roots.  Level soil again around the plants.  Plants need about an inch of water every 7 to 10 days during hot weather.  Cultivate every week or 10 days to keep grass and weeds from plants.
