Stamp raspberries: promising varieties and features of agricultural technology

Stem berry crops have recently become very popular in home gardening and are increasingly found in our country, gradually crowding out traditional varieties. Stack raspberries became known to domestic gardeners relatively recently, but have already managed to declare themselves as a promising and sought-after berry culture with high productivity indicators.

Botanical features

Of course, the standard is one of the most convenient in terms of placement on the site and care forms, which, thanks to the positive characteristics, has been recognized by gardeners and is widely used in home gardening in our country. Stack raspberries are able to reach two meters high, but such a berry plant does not require special pruning or the use of additional support, and a ripening abundant crop does not bend the branches to the soil.

An important advantage of this form is the high productivity of the plant, as well as the formation of large, salable berries, which successfully combine excellent taste and a pleasant berry aroma. Most standard varieties are characterized by the formation of sufficiently dense, not crumbling and suitable for long-term transportation of fruits. Thus, gardeners have a great opportunity to get maximum yield from a minimum planting area.

Promising varieties

The best and most promising varieties of standard raspberry or raspberry tree fruit in the period from June to August, a more accurate crop ripening period may vary depending on the soil conditions at the planting site, as well as climatic and weather characteristics of the cultivation region. Usually, such varieties are highly resistant to diseases and pests, and they are also able to withstand without shelter a drop in temperature in the winter to -20-24 ° C, which is due to the numerous positive reviews about standard raspberries.

Landing technology

Any variety of standard raspberries can be planted both in spring and in autumn. Spring planting is carried out approximately in mid-April, before the active sap flow of plants. Autumn planting is carried out at the beginning of October or in the last ten days of September, with mandatory soil pumping to the lower kidneys of the plant.

Stacked Raspberries: Pruning

Stamp varieties can be planted in a bush or tape method:

  • the soil in the area for raspberries should be loose, rich in nutrients, with moderate humidity;
  • strongly acidic soil must be liming by adding 0.3-0.5 kg of lime for digging per square meter of planting area;
  • dig the planting pits in the area prepared in advance for growing berry plants;
  • the standard dimensions of the planting hole are approximately 50 x 50 cm, and the depth may vary depending on the size of the root system of the seedling;
  • the distance between the pits with the bush method of planting is approximately 0.8-1 m, and between the rows the interval should be at least 1.8-2 m;

  • tape landing involves the preparation of a sufficiently long trench of standard depth;
  • before planting, it is recommended to dip the roots of the seedlings in a clay mash with the addition of a mullein solution;
  • in the planting pits or trenches, it is desirable to fill the nutrient layer based on wood ash and high-quality humus;
  • to place the berry seedling in the planting pit or trench should be at the same level with its location when grown in the nursery;
  • the soil around the planted plants should be mulched with humus, after which raspberries should be watered, spending about five liters of water for each seedling.

Important to rememberthat for spring planting, the soil on the site should be prepared in autumn, and for autumn planting, preparation is carried out about a month and a half before planting.

Properly planted berry bushes can form decent fruiting in one place for fifteen years, but experienced gardeners recommend updating the area under the berry crops every ten years, due to the risk of soil depletion, as well as a decrease in productivity and quality characteristics of the berry.

Care instructions

Stack raspberries, due to their high productivity, need competent agricultural technology. The main care for berry plantations consists in strict observance of the following rules of the technology of growing crops:

  • after the rooting of the bush, before flowering, it is recommended to treat its aerial part with the Topaz preparation, diluted at the rate of 10 ml per 10 liters of water, which will prevent the development of fungal and bacterial infections;
  • in the middle of the last spring month, raspberry tree should be sprayed from plant parasites with a solution based on the effective preparation BI-58, diluted in the proportion of a tablespoon per 10 liters of water;
  • at the stage of active fruiting, standard raspberries need abundant and regular irrigation measures;
  • in the summer, it is advisable to irrigate once a week, spending about 10 liters of water for each adult productive plant;
  • It is possible to feed the standard raspberries in the spring with both organic compounds and mineral fertilizers;
  • in the first ten days of September raspberry bushes are fertilized with the main mineral substances.

How to plant standard raspberries

In autumn, after fruiting, the side shoots should be cut, which will allow the plant to prepare well for winter frosts and have a positive effect on the yield of the next year.
