Care Information
Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Feed with a balanced fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. Train one-year-old canes on trellis. After harvest, prune canes that have fruited, allowing new canes to develop for next season.
