Care Tips

A self-made middle-early raspberry Award is demanding care. Agricultural technology involves planting varieties in spring or autumn, subject to the following recommendations:

  • Planting holes or trenches must be fertilized with humus with wood ash, and also moisturized with high quality. Nitrogen-containing fertilizers are not recommended: it prevents rooting, development and conservation of plants in the winter.
  • For landing, you should choose a site with a slightly acidic environment. Soil should retain moisture well and drain.
  • For raspberries, you need to choose areas that are well lit during the day, with deeply located underground waters that are not prone to moisture accumulation after irrigation.
  • It is not recommended to grow raspberries near potatoes, tomatoes and strawberries.
  • For ordinary planting, it is desirable to arrange plants from north to south or from northeast to southwest.

After planting, the plants also need competent care throughout the season: the systematic removal of weeds, loosening of the soil around the bushes, the abundant introduction of organic matter with a large amount of potassium (the use of mineral potash fertilizers must be reduced). The best organic fertilizer for this variety is rotted manure. It is introduced in early autumn or spring, at the rate of 3 kg per square meter of landings. Fertilizing should be accompanied by abundant watering: this improves the absorption of nutrients by plants.

When growing raspberries, it is very important to systematically process the bushes from diseases and pests. In this case, you can use both folk remedies and special chemicals.

We also suggest that you familiarize yourself with the varietal characteristics of raspberries of the Kuzmina Novosti variety.
