What can you tell me about the climate and soil required for loganberries, dewberries and boysenberries?

Loganberries and boysenberries are both dewberries, which are reliably hardy only to zone 6. The vines need a long growing season to harden off the wood for winter. The variety "Lucretia" is the hardiest and may survive winters in zones 4 or 5. Some northern gardeners have success with covering their plants with a foot or so of shredded leaves or straw during the winter.

Dewberries need rich, loose deeply dug soil. A good addition of manure prior to planting is beneficial.
