Strawberries, raspberries, blueberries - we love them and plant them more and more in the home garden. Although these three types of berries are very easy to care for, you should still pay attention to a few things so that you get a rich harvest. Here our Berry harvest tips:
- strawberries it is best to plant in late July or early August. Then you can count on lots of fruit next summer. A snail fence should be set up to protect against snails.
- raspberries Besides blackberries, they are probably the easiest to care for in the garden. Summer or autumn raspberries are harvested as soon as they are ripe. Try to do this really regularly, at least once a week. Harvested branches are cut close to the ground, as these will die anyway. Thin out new branches to 8 to 10, otherwise it will be too much.
- blueberries are harvested from mid-July to late August. Here you should protect the fruits with nets from birds. If you do not do this, you will probably not be able to harvest any fruit, because they are plastered faster than you look.
