berry planting distances

Asked November 13, 2015, 10:34 PM EST

Hi, I was wondering if you can plant more than one variety of raspberry in a garden bed or if they would cross breed even if they produce in different seasons? I'm considering Jewel (black/mid season) and Anne (fall/golden). I have three small rootings of each. Thank you

It is okay to plant more than one variety of raspberry in your beds and they will not cross breed. See our website for more information on planting http://extension.umd.edu/growit/fruit-profiles/raspberries-and-blackberries
and Penn State for spacing the plants http://extension.psu.edu/plants/gardening/fphg/brambles/planting mh
