what fertilizer to use on blackberries and raspberries

Shirley, IN

I have no idea what type of fertilizer to use on blackberry and raspberry bushes , how much per bush and when to add it. also lI could use the same information for strawberry plants.
I appreciate any advice you can give thanks.

Speaking of blackberries, What do you do when the bushes under the trellis start send out runners underground in all directions and sending up new plants?
I love blackberries but don't really want a yard full.

Some varieties send more runners than others. It seems to me that thorny ones send out more runners. Keep cutting off the ones that you don't want. Lawn edging may help since the runners are usually pretty shallow.
