COURTESY OF MAKO / WIKI COMMONS Wild raspberries are typically smaller than cultivated types. For maximum yield, plant raspberries in full sun, in soil that is free of rocks and sticks and amended with organic matter and fertilizer. When blackberries are ready to harvest, pull them gently from the stems and use them right away, or store in the refrigerator for a day or two.They can also be frozen in airtight plastic bags. STEVE JURVETSON / WIKIMEDIA near other rabbiteyes that bloom at the same time, to ensure cross-pollination. Raspberries Raspberries, like blackberries, need full sun and regular water, along with a midsummer feeding of fertilizer. Try growing the canes in a When to plant While blackberries and blueberries can be planted in the fall or early spring in Georgia, it’s best to plant raspberries in the spring. Visit your local garden center or nursery to purchase plants, or try these sources: • Shady Garden Nursery, 6545 Old West Point Road, LaGrange, www.shadygardensnursery.com (mail-order only) • Aaron’s Nursery, P.O. Box 800, Sumner, (888) 652-7939, www. aaronsfarm.com (mail-order only) • Andy’s Nursery and Landscaping, 1807 Highway 85 N., Fayetteville, (770) 461-6089, andysnursery.net August 2010 raised bed with well-composted soil, so you can pick easily from all sides when the fruit appears in the second year after planting. ‘Heritage’–This is an erect raspberry that resists powdery mildew and produces well, particularly in the upper half of Georgia. It’s considered an everbearing type that yields until fall. The mild-flavored berries are great for eating fresh or cooking. ‘Dorman Red’–This raspberry performs nicely even in hot, humid weather. Like ‘Heritage,’ it’s an ever- bearer, producing from June into fall. The plants trail over the ground, so stake them to improve productivity and easier harvesting. Lynn Coulter lives in Douglas County and is the author of “Mustard Seeds: Thoughts on the Nature of God and Faith” and “Gardening with Heirloom Seeds.” August garden chores: • Edge your lawn and garden area to keep it looking neat and tidy as the growing season ends. • Continue to hoe and rake up weeds so any that are growing now will not overwinter and come back even stronger next spring. • Refresh perennial beds with a layer of compost and mulch. • Continue to cut and dry herbs for later use; for best flavor, cut them before the flowers open. • Let some of your flowers go to seed. You can harvest the seeds of nonhybrids for sowing again next season, or let the birds enjoy them. 27 More online at www.georgiamagazine.org http://www.shadygardensnursery.com http://www.aaronsfarm.com http://www.aaronsfarm.com http://www.andysnursery.net http://www.georgiamagazine.org
