Did you know Raspberries plants can last 30 years, I recomend at least 15 plants per person, this allows plenty for desserts, bottling etc.


Raspberries are very shallow rooting, but like cool roots so mulching is a must. I like raspberry jam.
I am cheered on a cold, white winter day to know that Raspberries can last 30 years. Because i have been thinking about taking a road trip early this spring to dig some starts at a friend's who has a big patch of tall, robust, totally stickerless Raspberries, that also bear plentiful, large & delicious berries. I last saw them 16 years ago !!! The patch is big enough to dig 15 starts. if they don't already have an historic name I'm going to call them Destination Raspberries
