Raspberries are not only delicious, but also rich in nutrients. SSPDaily has learned that although it requires minimal attention, with some effort, you will get a generous harvest.

To ensure healthy growth, it is recommended to fertilize your garden with 3% Bordeaux liquid in March or early April. This will provide sufficient protection for about a month. However, if you notice diseases on your raspberries, such as anthracnose or white spot, left over from last year, it is advisable to re-treat.

To do this, you can use a 1% solution of Bordeaux liquid directly on the leaves and buds. It should be noted that we recommend avoiding other chemical treatments in the standard care routine.

Both raspberries and strawberries are vulnerable to a common enemy - the raspberry-strawberry weevil. Therefore, during the first cycle of spraying against pests with systemic insecticides, it is important to treat both of these berries together. The insects can significantly damage the fruit, which will eventually lead to a shortfall in yield.

If the damage from weevils is not severe, you can consider spraying the plants with phytoverm before flowering with an increased concentration. It is very important to observe a temporary break after this treatment. After that, don't forget to cut off all the overgrown shoots.

When pruning, it is necessary to remove not only the affected shoots, but also unnecessary young growth that can deplete resources. In good weather, water the plants if there has not been sufficient rainfall. Horse manure is an excellent fertilizer, and in the spring you can mulch the aisles with grass clippings.

It is very important to fertilize raspberries with urea every year. The process is not too complicated, but neglecting it will result in smaller and less juicy berries. The application of potash and phosphorus fertilizers, as well as ash or inexpensive superphosphates and sulfates, can also be beneficial.

Ash is especially useful for raspberries - spread an almost liter can evenly over the entire length of the ridge. Since this berry tends to spread rather than grow in bushes, it is important to apply two tablespoons of each fertilizer under each trunk.
