Repair raspberries have been recognized by many domestic gardeners and are cultivated in most regions of our country. Repairing raspberries for Siberia are especially interesting, where the soil and climatic conditions are quite complicated and getting a rich harvest can be very difficult.
Repair raspberry combines several types at once. In recent years, growing attention has been paid to the cultivation of such varieties, due to some features and positive characteristics of remont raspberries:
It should be remembered that even very good and promising repair varieties will not be able to form a full and high yield with insufficient care or violation of agricultural technology. It is also necessary to carefully consider the choice of variety and give preference only to the best and zoned varieties adapted to the soil and climatic conditions in the cultivation region.
Siberia is characterized by a significant increase in climate continentality and the repeated return of cold weather in the spring, which requires the choice of only the most resistant to adverse weather conditions varieties of berry culture.

Remontance is the ability of a berry culture to continuously bear fruit throughout the growing season. Repairing raspberry varieties form a crop not only on biennial, but also on annual shoots. Such high productivity requires strict observance of the rules for choosing a site for growing and planting technology for a permanent place:
When planting most of the repairing raspberry varieties, it is recommended to keep the distance between rows of 1.5-2.5 m with an interval between plants in a row of 0.7-0.9 m. Plants need to be planted at the same depth at which they were grown in the nursery , or deepening by a few centimeters, which will allow the root system to remain at the optimum depth after the soil has been sedimented. In the Siberian region, it is desirable to carry out spring planting of seedlings of berry culture, which allows plants to take root well before winter frosts.
It is advisable to cultivate repairing raspberry varieties in Siberia according to standard technology, providing berry plantings with care that allows the plant to bear fruit abundantly for a long time:
It should be remembered that when determining planting dates and developing a scheme for caring for plantations of remont raspberries, weather conditions are required, and the harsh Siberian climate and late frosts often shift planting dates established by growing technology until mid-summer.
