To go along with DDDs thread, I picked up strawberry, blueberry, blackberry, and raspberry bushes. I've never grown them. My dad didn't do fruits. And my mom ordered the lovely peach tree we had in the back yard chopped down. (she had 5 very angry kids when she did that lol ) So any helpful hints, tips or advice? I'd like to plant them along the back fence where they'd get plenty of sun and hamper Mr. Rowdy from digging out. (he won't bother if something is in his way) I was going to attempt to just dig a hole for each and put them in with some good ol fashion manure.........although the spot I have picked, Mr. Rowdy has fertilized quite well. Which has me wondering about the soil ph, not that I know anything about soil ph lol . But every other plant known to man seems to thrive above and beyond in that area. They'd not be right on top of the garden that way, but would still be close enough for bees to pollinate.
