I have terraced some of my steep mountain land and one of the terraces will be designated for raspberries. The space will have some shade but should have enough sunlight to grow the raspberries fine. I have heard a lot about Heritage and it is currently on sale at Wayside Gardens, about 75 miles from me but much hotter down there in the foothills What do you recommend? I hope to find one that bears more than just once in the spring and has lots of flavor! Any advice would be appreciated.
Good for you! Yum! Yum! for next year! You may want to mulch around them with a thick layer of straw,etc. if you want to keep spreading to a miminum. I didn't do that the first place I had them and ended up with a 8 ft. wide bramble! Not fun to prune out the old canes, that's for sure. I only have room for one bush here and I got one that bears on one year canes so I can chop everything off and start over. I like that!
It just so happens; I just loaded and I do mean loaded my truck with raspberry cutting and rooted Raspberries yesterday.I ordered them from Gurney's about 5 years ago. I also took a few cuttings from my thornless Blackberries,too.If you are interested in trading something PLMK.Thanks, Jody
I think they are Arapaho well it's an Indian tribe name. I'd have to ask my neighbor.They are heavy producers;I have picked enough buckets of them over the last several years.They are very big and taste great.
