  • Care
    Care Information
    Thrives in humus-rich, moist, well-drained soils. Prefers cool summer climates, with shelter from harsh winter winds and mulch to protect root zone. Provide afternoon shade in hot summer regions. For best fruit production, allow 4 - 5 new canes to develop yearly, until there are 15 - 16 canes, then dormant prune the 3 year-old canes to ground level annually.Pruning time: late winter to early spring..
    Light Needs:
    <strong>Partial Sun / Partial Shade</strong>: These two terms are often used interchangeably to mean 3-6 (or 4-6) hours of sunlight each day. However, there is a difference.
<strong>Partial shade</strong> typically means the plants will appreciate a more gentle exposure such as the weaker morning or early afternoon sun, with the emphasis on providing the minimum needed shade and sheltering from intense late afternoon sun. <strong>Partial sun</strong> typically means the plants <u>need</u> some direct sun, so the emphasis is on meeting the required minimum hours of sunlight, with filtered sunlight or shade the balance of the day.
Both are best with shelter from the harshest late afternoon sun. This shade could be provided by a structure, a wall, larger plants or  tree(s).
