The Q&A Archives: organic fertilizing of raspberries in New Jersey

Question: Hi, We want to switch from chemical fertilizers to organic. Can you advise us what to use for our raspberries and blackberries. Thank you for your time, Laura

Answer: You can mix your own fertilizer in a wheelbarrow and then spread it around the bases of the plants. Use 4 parts canola seed meal or fish meal, 1 part dolomitic lime (offsets the acidity of the seed meal), 1 part rock phosphate or 1/2 part bone meal
and 1 part kelp meal.

Best wishes with your berries!
