    On the site I grew red and yellow raspberries, which I paid a lot of attention to, especially after reading one article on the proper care of the berry. It was written by an academician who has been growing raspberries for over 30 years.
    He wrote that she should be allowed to grow to 1,5-1,6 m, after which it is necessary to pinch the growth point.

    After some time, sprouts will appear from the upper axils of the leaves, i.e. continued growth. I let these sprouts grow up to 5-6 cm and pinch again, after which the branching of the bush begins. The next step is its formation. It is necessary to monitor the growth of branches, because they grow differently: some from the upper sinuses, others from the lower ones.
    I let the lower branches grow up to 30-35 cm, but only those that grow away from the bush, and not inside, in order to avoid strong thickening - after all, this is one of the causes of diseases.
    As for preparing for winter: some gardeners tie raspberry branches into bunches for the winter and leave them to winter. So far, no one can give us an accurate weather forecast for the whole winter - how much snow will fall, what frosts are expected. For several years I tried to bend down for the winter, and to tie in bundles, but the results were always different. Like, for example, in the winter of 2013-2014: there were frosts, but there was no snow. If it fell out, it was only before the thaw - it melted almost immediately.

    3. Two years ago I planted yellow raspberries (my grandchildren are allergic), I don’t know the name of the variety, but they say that it is remontant. Last year, the berries were on three bushes out of 15. The rest did not bloom. I thought they would be in the fall, but they didn't bloom in the fall either. Watered infrequently. Maybe because of this? Or because it grows in partial shade?

    I was allergic to the berries of ordinary red raspberries: my skin began to itch and my eyes watery. There is no such reaction to yellow raspberry. Our first grade was the Yellow Giant - an early ripening, remontant, large-fruited, dessert, fruitful and winter-hardy (I don’t bend branches for the winter). But this variety has its drawbacks: the berries are difficult to transport, and the bad thing is that raspberries continue to bear fruit in the fall, and these berries do not ripen.
    I planted raspberries in the spring at a distance of 1,5-1,8 m between the bushes and in the aisles. In the soil under each bush made 1 tbsp. a spoonful of complex mineral fertilizer, 0,5 bucket of humus and 1 glass of ash.

    Usually, stems grow by autumn to a height of 1,5-2,5 m. They are studless, thick, but fragile (break from the wind), so we had to install trellises 2 m high with a wire in 3 rows. I fix each stem in the upper part so that the bush does not fall under the weight of the crop, which is already significant 2 years after planting the bush (3-3,5 kg from the bush).
    After flowering, I fertilize: pour 1 bucket of bird droppings solution (0,5 l per 10 l of water) under each bush, adding 1 cap of humate and 1 tbsp. a spoon of nitrophoska. Following watering with plain water.
    In late August, I first cut off the fruiting branches and begin rationing, leaving 4-5 of the strongest shoots per bush. At this time, inflorescences appear for the fall harvest. At flowering shoots, I cut off the tops (30-40 cm each) to interrupt fruiting.
    Since mid-May, when raspberry flies are flying, I have been spraying raspberries with an insecticide solution with a waiting period of about a month (just about 30 days later, the time for picking berries will come). Occasionally, in a wet summer, a raspberry leaf appears on raspberries - I also fight it with an appropriate insecticide.

    I want to plant a yellow-yellow raspberry. Than its cultivation differs from ordinary? Which varieties are suitable for our southern region?

      Yellow raspberry is a type of raspberry whose fruits contain more sugars, folic acid, vitamin B6 and fewer acids and anthocyanins. They are sweeter than ordinary raspberries and are recommended for people with allergies. The agricultural technology of yellow raspberries is mostly similar to ordinary.
      The site for planting should be well lit and not swamped. Raspberry does not grow on limestones, dry sandy soils and solonchaks. Before planting the soil loosen, add manure, peat and sand. Plants are planted in a row through 80 cm. Above the planting is necessarily mulched. During the growing season
      period produce several dressings. In early June - infusion of weeds (1:10) and immediately after that with a solution of slurry. In October, a bucket of compost or rotted manure is brought under the bushes. If autumn is dry, raspberries are additionally watered (3 buckets of water per 1 bush).
      Before wintering, raspberry shoots are pulled into loose bundles and bent to the soil. Cover plants with spruce branches and fall asleep with snow. There are many varieties of yellow raspberries that differ in fruit size and color. The most popular, well-established in the southern regions, are Cornish Victoria, Apricot, Golden Domes, Morning Dew.

    Good afternoon! My question is: can a yellow raspberry be planted next to a red raspberry?
