Ive Recently bought a Raspberry and blackberry bush from homebase (only place ive seen them available) and their still in their potting as my garden isnt ready and really id like them to go in it than at my own house
The raspberry plant is a "polka" so curious as to whether it needs different requirements, says the plants 2 year old on the labelling but its roughly 40-50cm high, should I plant it in a bigger pot and if so what soil or conditions roughly or any fertiliser? also watering im hopeless at, I know they need quite a bit but like well drained soil though mine shows zero sign of flowers atm
the Blackberry bush is much smaller, barely 30cm high and unsure its age, it is a "waldo" variety, again wondering the same requirements or what I should be doing with it like the raspberry bush, especially watering as im aware that can kill a plant faster than not watering enough
Both plants have zero sign of bearing fruit this year, but both seem healthy enough a few torn leaves but nothing that seems to be eaten or disease, more so tearing.
The idea of pruning scares me incase i take away too much, also from reading its done later in the year, basically im looking a little guidance on keeping them healthy until their new home is ready
thank you in advance, Chris
