How To Grow
The Boysenberry is a cross between a Raspberry, a Blackberry, a Dewberry and a Loganberry. It grows best in cooler climates but will grow successfully in hotter parts of the country if it is managed for late Spring and early Summer fruiting. It prefers a rich well drained soil in a position that does not have exposure to the hot afternoon sun. When planting, create a 10-15cm mound to assist drainage, mulch and keep well-watered during growing period. Attaining a height of 2m, they should be supported with a trellis or grown up against a wall or wires. Boysenberries produce their fruit on year-old canes or vines, so you have to prune accordingly.
Plant: Cover roots 150cm apart in Full sun
