Intro: Planting a Raspberry Bush
Here is a great way to start a red raspberry patch.
You will need:
Step 1: Till the Ground
Start by tilling up the area where you want to plant your bushes.
You want the soil to tilled at least 1 ft deep.
Step 2: Mix in Compost
Add some compost to the tilled area to supply nutrients to the soil.
Mix it in thoroughly with the tiller.
Step 3: Dig a Hole to Plant
Using the shovel dig a hole where you want the plant to grow.
The whole should be deep enough to have the root ball raised above the ground by 3 inches as the compost will sing over time.
Step 4: Plant the Bush
Place the plant's root ball into the whole.
Pack soil around the root ball so that the soil is raised 3 inches around the ball to provide protection for the plant.
Pack the soil down around the bush.
Water regularly,and it will start to grow.
