Raspberries are best planted in a well-drained soil of loam or sand within a neutral to acidic PH balance. They are best positioned in an area of full sun as this will produce the best and most fruits. Raspberries are usually planted in rows using a post and wire system, however if you have smaller garden they can be grown in containers.

Amend the soil with well-rotted compost or manure before planting..
Water well during dry periods but be careful not to overwater. Tie in new canes as they grow and prune out any weak shoots. After fruiting, cut canes that have fruited down to soil level. Feed with a general fertiliser in spring and apply a mulch.
It is possible to propagate Raspberries by suckers.
