I purchased some half price berry bushes a few weeks ago as they were old stock. A thornless blackberry, a raspberry and a blueberry. I began planting them into the gardens on Thursday. Home nurtured compost was dug into the soil, plants will be watered in with seaweed fertiliser and mulched with matured horse manure and straw. The pH in that garden usually averages 5.5 along the fence line so all the requirements for healthy growth should be met.
|Bed piled up and reinforced by wood beam.|
|Teasing out the roots was a challenge|
|Blueberry planted. Trench in front of bed was filled with aged horse manure.|
|Watered in and mulched. Remaining bushes will be planted in the next few days as now I am "bushed"!|
Looking forward to possibly harvesting some fruit this season.
