Choosing the Right Location
As with any type of planting, choosing the right location for growing fruits and berries is a key to success. Your site should contain dry, loamy soil, as too much moisture facilitates the spread of disease. Planting in the middle of a slope can limit the harmful effects of frost. Be sure the site you choose is not in the shade, as fruits need plenty of sunlight to thrive.
