I've been wanting to do this for a few years now, and this time I'm doing it.

I got 2 rasberry plants and 2 blueberry plants, just to get started.


My lovely and long suffering wife is looking at me like:"oh Lord! here he goes with a new hobby!":tapfoot:

I'll make her eat her words..... just as soon as I get some berries! :cook:

Enjoy Robie! We have a few blueberry bushes but have given up on them because of our soil and two strawberry plants. We have 4 blackberry plants and they are the most wonderful thing every! The kids snack off of them all summer. I wouldn't mind picking up a few more.

Good luck!

Primocane or floricane?

You need to look this up, so you'll know how to care for them. Primocanes produce fruit on this year's growth. Floricanes produce fruit on last year's growth. You need to know which canes to keep and which to cut.
