I talked about blueberries and strawberries the past two Frugal Friday’s but we can’t forget about our other berries! My MIL gave us two nice thorn-less blackberry bushes and so I wanted to share with you tips for for success with these too! Raspberries, Blackberries and Currants take a little more space but they are easy to grow.
Here are some tips for Raspberries, Blackberries and Currants:
- Remove old drying canes after harvest to keep raspberries thriving.
- Pinch back tips of new growth at 3-4 feet to encourage branching.
- Once fruit has formed, consider netting your plants to save your crops from the birds.
