Raspberries are fantastic little fruits that are great in fruit salads, desserts, jams, and preserves.
Raspberry plants are hardy perennials, easily propagated by seed. Preferring sunny, well-drained soils, mature raspberry plants will grow to heights between 1m and 1,5m, with a spread of 750mm to 1m. Raspberries will bear fruit in the summer of their second growing season when planted from seed.
Fill a seed starter tray with sterile potting soil in the early autumn. Press one to two raspberry seeds 5mm down into the soil of each cell. Pat the soil down gently over the seeds to remove air pockets.
Mist the soil lightly to dampen, using a spray bottle filled with water. Keep the soil moist throughout the germination process. Place the seed starter tray in a cool, dark area while the raspberry seeds germinate. The seeds will begin to sprout within three months.
Set the seed starter tray in an area that receives bright, indirect sunlight once the seeds begin to sprout. If this is not possible, set up a grow light and place the seed starter tray underneath.
Continue to keep the soil moist and provide the raspberry plants with adequate light as they continue to grow. Transplant the raspberry plants outdoors in the spring, as soon as the soil is workable.
