Planting/Care Instructions +

Pests or Diseases: Mosaic resistant. Superior Disease and Insect Resistance

Planting Instructions: May be planted in any well-drained soil. Dig a hole large enough to encompass the roots without bending or circling. Set the plant in place so the crown (part of the plant where the roots meet the stem) is about 1-2" below the soil surface. Cover with soil to the original soil surface and water thoroughly. Fertilize newly set plants 2-3 weeks after planting and again in early summer. Water well during growth, and consider mulching to conserve water until the following spring, when the mulch should be removed to let the plants warm up. In winter, cut back to about 5 canes per crown. Cane berries prefer a deep, well-drained, fertile soil and typically bear fruit on 2-year old wood with everbearers producing on first-year wood. Thrive in most soil types. Versatile and hardy in the coldest climates where other cane fruits fail. Plant late winter to early spring. Space 2'-3' in a row with 8'-10' between rows. It is best to plant immediately upon receipt. If you are unable to plant immediately, refrigerate and plant as soon as possible. Do not add water. Keep in original packing to retain proper moisture, until you can plant.
