Hello all, I have some questions about wild raspberries!
My grandma lives in the mountains where there used to be a raspberry farm... until a tornado hit it. 10 years later, these raspberries have turned wild and are ALL OVER THE PLACE.The past 3 years I have been collecting young plants in the fall and transplanting them to the hillside behind my house. This has worked wonderful for me - i am getting pints upon pints of delicious raspberries just from a few plants that I pulled out of the woods. However, I am wondering how to care for my plants right now...
Should I trim them all down to a few inches above the ground? Should they be tied to some sort of trellising? What would be a good method of weed control? Could I take old empty PAPER chicken feed bags and lay them down in the rows?
Thankyou all! Any care tips to increase my crops are much appreciated!
