Our new place has several raspberry bushes and lots of strawberry plants. Any ideas on house to care for, trim, etc. Never had them before.

Growing berries

You might want to stop by the library and check out some books. You can also call your Dept. of Agriculture Extension Agent for some free literature on growing berries in your Growing Zone.

Cool Thanks

Thanks Twelvepole & Gami

With a little luck, we'll be having raspberry & strawberry jam.

Hi Notaplumber,

You're welcome! Good luck with your plants. I've never grown raspberries, but I've had a huge bed of strawberries. The main thing is to plant them at the right depth. After that, they grow like weeds!

If you want a great recipe for freezer strawberry jam, try the one that comes in a box of Pecto. It's better than any canned recipe I've tried.

Hi Gami

That is a great recipe. My mom has a couple of really great recipes for all kinds of jam. I'm still a beginner.

Will let you know how the growing goes.
