Two of my three raspberry patches were planted running east to west and I noticed that the berries seem to grow better on the south side of the plants. This winter I decided to move all the plants to the same location and orient them in a north south direction. With a little luck, berries will grow on both sides of the plants.
I decided to put seven feet between each row to make it easier to pick the berries and keep the lawn mowed. I have Caroline plants which fruit in the early summer and again in the fall, Tulameen plants that produce a berries with a sweet rich flavor, and Meeker plants which are heavy producers and the fruit freezes well.
I dug up the plants from here.
I added Hendrikus organic fertilizer to the soil to give the plants a little boost with reestablishing their root systems in their new home.
I must admit I did have a little help digging the trenches for the berries....
Meekers in the first row.
