Answer: Raspberries are usually planted in the early spring. Raspberry plants need full sun exposure and a soil that holds moisture but drains well, such as a good, rich, crumbly garden soil. They prefer a pH that is slightly acidic (5.5-6.0). Clear and till the planting area, removing large rocks, and work in some organic material and bone meal at tilling time. A couple of hours before planting, soak the roots in a bucket of water. When planting the raspberries, set them a few inches deeper than they were growing at the nursery. While growing (especially during flower/fruit production) your plants will need a regular water supply. To help keep the plants from drying out, a thick layer of mulch, such as straw, is beneficial. The mulch also helps keep weeds at bay.
