Planting Raspberries in South Florida
Yesterday, I received my order of raspberries and blackberries! They were in the ground within 2 hours from when the UPS guy delivered them. After all, the spot has been ready for a year.
There are very few brambles rated for my zone (9b or 10A). Anne rasp. and triple crown blackberry are two of them.
Last March, I planted 5 blackberries and 5 raspberries and they died with a few months. I think the roots dried out during shipping. I'm going to spread pine bark mulch over the area today to prevent the roots from drying out. The roots are only supposed to be planted 2 inches from the surface, so the mulch will help. Here's how I planted them last year. Here's another post about planting them. This year was pretty much the same routine.
