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

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!
