How to get rid of overgrown raspberry

Yes, good raspberry sometimes "hurts" gardeners their offspring: they suddenly appear in the garden carrot, in the center of the currant Bush, on the neighbouring property. F. H. Khalilov from Tatarstan, as it seems, found a way out. He puts raspberries with spacing of 2 m. the Selected section lays out the pegs. Then the cord is digging a trench width of 50 cm and a depth of 45-50 cm Length of the trench equal to the length of the raspberries and the number of tranches is the number of rows. Trench green thumb runs a specially prepared nutrient mixture.

On the bottom of bags of rotted manure or compost with a layer of 5-6 cm and then evenly dispersed 150-200 g of double superphosphate, 60-70 g of potassium sulphate or potassium chloride at 1 m Instead of mineral fertilizers can be made nitrophosphate or NPK. Very good to add 300-400 g of wood ash, too, is based on 1 m. To the mixture pours 5-7 cm of soil, all well mixed with a shovel. Thus, at the bottom of the trench is nourishing a layer thickness of 10-12 cm, is concentrated and contains many mineral salts.

It should not come into contact with the roots of young seedlings. Therefore F. H. Khalilov pours 10-12 cm of the soil removed from the trench, and slightly plumping. To fill the top (20-25 cm) layer of the trench after preparing a planting mixture of soil, 1 bucket of humus and compost, 50 g of superphosphate, 10 to 12 grams of potassium sulphate or potassium chloride, and 100 g of ash per 1 m. Such a careful preparation of the planting trench, of course, time-consuming, but facilitates the subsequent care of the raspberries and helps increase yield.

Then, to prevent the proliferation of raspberry, green thumb on the edges of the trench throughout its entire length vertically puts the insulating barriers of various scrap materials: pieces of slate, roofing material, polyethylene film. The offspring of raspberries appear from a depth of 20-25 cm, and if the lower edge of the barrier will be at a depth of 28-30 cm, the offspring will not be able to overcome it. Nourishing the roots will be freely distributed throughout the area of the aisles, moving easily under the barrier, the upper edge of which 5-7 cm protrudes above the ground. This allows you to make a recess —the recess for the convenience of watering and liquid feeding. Barrier grower makes thorough, leaving no gaps and holes, or the offspring of the raspberries will find them outside the trench.

Before landing on the center line of the trench pulls the cord and next to it places the raspberries with a distance in the range from 60 cm to 1 m depending on the way of further development.

Yuri Zelenin. "My secrets" are disclosed. In ten years of growing raspberries, I decided that mulch in the form of a black film hurts.roots. They rise, and after the removal of mulch material find their death under the scorching rays of the sun. But if the mulch is not removed, it grows enormously through the very long, branched, as thick as the beard, the roots (under black tape, in my opinion, not the best habitat for roots), and if well fertilized and watered the plants, and the branches begin to stretch, setting a record worthy of the Guinness Book. For example, I have one of the branches of the varieties Gloria reached a height of 3 m 25 see the Good in this is nothing. Because the maximum yield give chunky bushes. The roots too, in my opinion, it is better to be in heavy loam and be chunky than to stretch in the mulch.

In any case, under no circumstances do not loosen the soil in the raspberry patch! Even the grass does not pull, and the offspring do not touch, so as not to loosen the ground and remove the shears. Fertilize best of all, injecting nutrient solutions into the habitat of the roots.

In the separate scheme of cultivation after harvest, breaking the usual rules, namely: leave shrubs to vegetate to fall and only then cut out and stand from the site. The suckers and shoots in the spring also need to give "work" on the formation of roots, and remove when they begin to cast shadow on plotnostyu raspberries and the first and second year. Do not give offspring to form new bushes, except in cases of attack the main plant. Less crowding, more light on each sheet, and will be a fabulous harvest. published by P. S.
