life time of raspberry canes


By Sayle

how long can i leave raspberry canes in tyhe same piece of ground?
is there a recommended programme of fertiliser which would prolong this life ?



Don't think there is a recommended time period, Sayle, though it might make sense to move them after ten years or so. Mulch them with compost after you have cut out this years fruiting canes and I would think they should be evry happy.

I lived in the same house for the first twelve years of my life and the raspberries were still in the same place when we left!
