Raspberries grow in almost all garden and summer cottages: from the Far East to the Black Sea. Berries are not only tasty, but also have a lot healing properties, the most famous of which are anti-inflammatory and antipyretic. Growing raspberries does not present any difficulties, but in order to get a good harvest, some care rules must be followed. A common raspberry bush has one and biennial stems, the latter bear fruit. In autumn, after fruiting, they are cut out. If they are not cut, they will still die off, but they will stick out and thicken the plantings.
Raspberries, like most berry bushes, take a lot of nutrients from the soil, so they should fertilize regularly, preferably with fresh manure or humus and mineral fertilizers. At the same time, after 15 years, the soil will be depleted, the yield will decrease, the bushes will have to be transplanted to another place. Raspberries are propagated by annuals root suckers, they are planted in early spring or late autumn in a bush or tape manner. At the same time, it must be remembered that strawberries cannot be planted near it, they have common pests and diseases. Raspberry bushes form a branched root system, buds form on the adventitious roots, from which new stems are formed. If not restrict root growth a wide trench, raspberries will capture more and more garden areas.
Growing raspberry remontant different from the usual one. In this plant, berries are formed already on annual shoots. On two-year-olds, they also grow, but they greatly weaken the plant and delay the appearance of berries on annual shoots. Therefore, usually two-year-old stems are simply not allowed to grow, annual shoots are cut out completely after fruiting (in October). This plant hibernates without an aerial part, and in the spring new shoots appear, which bloom a little later than ordinary varieties.
