How to Grow

How to grow video guide
From seed

Prepare your planting spot for the seeds first, moisten the peat disks or fill the plastic pots with the seed starting mix, you’ll want to choose a low-nutrient starting mix for this.

Once the peat pellets have absorbed water and expanded, they should be soft and easy to put seeds into.

They’ll look a lot like the image to the left.

Use a pencil to push them down into the soil about 1cm deep.

Once planted, put a thin layer of sand over the seeds and then set them in a sheltered spot outside.

Keep the soil surface slightly moist with water from a spray bottle.

Remember that raspberries don’t need a lot of water, so go on the side of caution and don’t spray them too much.

After about four weeks of care, the seeds should start to germinate.

It could take as long as six weeks to see the first ones sprout though, be patient.

From seedling

Begin transplanting when rasberries are 3cm tall.

Collect seed

Crush the berries against the side of the colander while running water over them.

Pick out the tiny, light-brown seeds from the crushed flesh.

Drain the raspberry seeds on a sheet of paper towel while you prepare the planting container.

Tips for Care

looks_one
It’s imperative that you don’t reuse any soil that’s been used recently for potatoes, tomatoes, eggplant, brambles (wild blackberry), roses and peppers of any type.
looks_two
All raspberries are self-fertile, so you only need one bush to produce fruit.

They’re best pollinated by bees and will start producing fruit a year after planting.

All raspberries will need pruning annually
