Provide fertile, mildly acidic, well-drained soil. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish root system. Produces on second-year canes; after harvest, prune away older canes that have fruited to the ground, leaving one-year-old canes to produce next season's crop. Train newer canes on a trellis. Feed in early spring.
