Raspberries and blackberries are favorites of home gardeners. They are relatively easy to grow and very productive when cared for properly. This article will provide basic information about caneberries for the home garden.

The first consideration in growing caneberries is site selection. They require full sun, well-drained soil, and soil that has not recently grown strawberries, potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, or eggplants to avoid infection with Fusarium wilt. Also, the site needs to be at least 300 feet away from wild caneberries. The wild berries may pose a risk for pest and disease problems.
