LARGE Raspberry - MY SECRETS
Harvests from my summer raspberry plantation can only be envied. And when friends ask where such large berries come from, I do not hide: there are three important points in agricultural technology that many do not pay attention to.
1. Install raspberry supports
I plant raspberries in rows, on the edges of which I lay pillars with taut wires. On them I evenly spread the shoots, which are lit from all sides by the sun, are well ventilated. As a result, plants on the trellis annually produce 6-8 times more berries than similar bushes without support. And all the fruits are large, sweet.
2. Do not overgrow
Often summer residents attribute the absence of crops to the fact that raspberries supposedly degenerate. At the same time, their plants look like neglected thickets. My advice: in the fall, re-outline the rows, in a row, drive the pegs on the twine after 70 cm, uproot all the plants in the row-spacing. Care for the abandoned bushes completely: feed, water, mulch with organic matter, and in a row in empty places (where there is nothing on the twine), plant new seedlings after 70 cm (you can from uprooted shoots). Rows of raspberries do up to 30 cm wide, and inside the row between the bushes should be free space.
3. Fight the shoots
So that the main shoots of the bush are well lit by the sun and the crop is formed along the entire length of the shoots, and not just at their top, I cut the shoots with a sharp shovel at a depth of 3-5 cm in the ground.
Everything that the author describes, of course, needs to be done.
But the basis of good raspberry harvests is also mandatory fertilizer: annually in the spring - nitrogen (to fill up 30 g of ammonium nitrate in the soil per 1 sq. m), every 3 years in the autumn - phosphorus-potassium (15-20 g of double superphosphate and potassium salt per 1 sq. m). For raspberries of repairing varieties, increase the dose by 1-5 times. Raspberries are also responsive to top dressing with rotten manure. Usually it is introduced in the spring at the beginning of the growing season in the form of mulch with a layer of 2-5 cm, uniformly covering the soil around the plants.
