It's Easy to Plant your Cumberland Black Raspberry


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Cumberland Black Raspberry.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.



Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Cumberland Black Raspberry gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Cumberland Black Raspberry again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

Ordered and planted 3. Quality shipping with little damage to the vines. 4 weeks later, they are all doing well. Wishing I had thought to plant these last year as it will be a long wait for a pie ;).

This vine arrived within superb packaging; - the finest I've ever seen. The vine itself has been doing terrific and has continued to grow at a very fast pace throughout the summer to date.y The quality of all merchandise purchased from Fast Growing Trees has always been remarkable which is why I continue to purchase from them and recommend the company to all of my friends and acquaintances.

black raspberry bushes are common in the area of central New Jersey where I live, but I recently encountered what appeared to be a 30-35 foot tall black raspberry "tree" that was covered with ripe black raspberries. Is it possible for bushes to grow and develop into trees over time?
William G on Jun 14, 2014
Best Answer: Raspberry bushes can be trained to grow like vines, or kept as bushes. They do not grow like trees. Some trees produce berries that look like raspberries. You could be seeing a vine on a tree, or berry producing tree.

Will a 2 year produce fruit?
A shopper on Aug 6, 2014
Best Answer: At the beginning of last summer, I planted 1 berry bush. It yielded 3 berries all summer. This summer I've yielded 20+ so far with the early crop. I have a second batch coming thru by the end of summer.

Can you grow this black raspberry plant in a container?
A shopper on Jul 7, 2014
Best Answer: Yes, you can but it must be a 7 gal or bigger pot with good drainage and it will also
need a large trellis, since it sends out 4 to 5 foot runners and give it good berry fertilizer.
Berrys are large and yummie. Just picked my first ones the other day. Enjoy!

A shopper on Jun 14, 2014
Best Answer: Our plant is only one year old, so at this point it is a bush. I do not think it will grow into a tree. Hope this helps, Sue

At what age will does Cumberland Black Raspberries produce berries?
A shopper on Sep 9, 2014
Best Answer: I planted last year in May 2013, and got none, but this year we have gotten a few. We did not trim to the ground last fall like we needed to, so will do this fall, for a bigger crop next spring.
Good luck,
Sue

my plant is two years old lots of buds that do not turn to berries whats up? Bend Oregon
clarance h on Jul 2, 2014
Best Answer: Although the Raspberry plant is self pollinating you may need to plant another one in order to help your plant get pollinated. If you don't wish to plant another Raspberry plant you an take a dry paint brush and gently run it over every bloom once or twice a day. This will spread the pollen around. Don't wash the paint brush in between uses.

Will my Trees and Shrubs Look Like the Photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos.

Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

Bare Root trees are shipped without dirt or any green foliage showing. Some customers who have never planted bare root before, think that they received a "dead stick" with roots. These dormant trees are basically sleeping over the winter as most trees do. Because of their hibernation-like stage, this is a great way to transplant these trees. Since a bare root tree lacks foliage, they need very little moisture.


Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
