STRAWBERRIES AND RASPBERRIES
I HAVE SEVERAL RAISED GARDEN BEDS. ONE IS FOR STRAWBERRIES AND ANOTHER FOR RASPBERRIES. CAN I PLANT TWO VARITIES OF STRAWBERRIES IN THE SAME BED? CAN I PLANT BLACK CAP RASPBERRIES AND REGULAR RASPBERRIES IN THE SAME RAISED BED?
Yes you can. Just make sure to prune the black raspberries differently than the red. The black grow from the previous years canes. They should be pruned up to 3 times a year. If they have long thick shoots or suckers, prune them way back. Those stems do not produce fruit. Once you harvest some fruit, prune those stems back about a 12 inches above a node. You will get more fruit in its place. Good luck
