Question & Answer
Hi there, I have been reading about growing boysenberries and some info sites say to plant them running north to South while other sites say it doesn't matter. Does this make any difference? From: LARGS BAY SA
I would assume that you would get benefit planting North to South when planting close together to optimise sun exposure. This would would become important in commercial quantities where they are trying to jam in as many as they can in the smallest space they can. If you are planting them with a spacing of about 1.5m or more I don't think it will matter too much. More important is choosing a space where they are going to get as much sun as possible.
I'd like to grow berries such as boysenberries, raspberries, blackberries, etc. I live on the Atherton Tablelands, and we have our Wet season when these berries flower and fruit, ie from November to March. Will they grow in my area, as we can sometimes get frosts in winter? Thank. From: Ravenshoe QLD
You should be able to grow most berries on the cooler parts of Atherton Tablelands. Heritage Raspberry, Youngberry and Boysenberry should be OK. #RaspberryHeritage700 #BerryYoungberry2740 #BerryBoysenberry695
