2. Perfect Composting
Anyone who considers themselves even remotely serious about gardening should consider having their own self-sustaining compost heap on the other side of the garden. First, it’s one of the best things that you can do for the environment as a whole – and more than this, it can also have a long list of benefits for your garden.
All-natural compost can give plants the boost they need, and it goes a long way to enriching the soil for perfect plant growth. All of the cuttings that come out of the garden (as well as any other organic materials like banana peels) can be worked into the compost heap and become something useful instead of just taking up space.
For raspberry plants, work in compost for the initial planting phase – and then at least twice per year while continuously checking the pH of the soil to make sure it falls between 6 and 7, considered neutral.
