Dan’s Garden: Planting small fruits
BISMARCK, N.D. (KFYR) - “This week in the garden I want to talk about small fruits, and you can plant those now, because they are perennials; plants that live year to year.
It’s still a little to early to plant any tomatoes plants and cucumbers and squash, things like that are in the greenhouse, because they’re going to be tender.
So, some of the new plants that are popular are honey berries. Honey berries are kinda like blueberries. It taste like a blue berry but it’s a little that gets about three to four feet high and three to four feet wide.
Their high in antioxidants and their good for you, and their easy to grow in our soil whether you have gimbal or high sodium or bad water.
They’re a lot easier to grow than a blueberry, and of course you can plant raspberries right now or strawberry plants right now. Or you can plant grapes rhubarb It’s easy, they like a lot of manure or bonemeal, and you can plant Jostaberry, another one that’s high in antioxidants gets about four or five feet high and wide.
Our weed of the week is crab grass, and you can put a fertilizer on it right now that can prevent that from happening and you’ll probably get rid of them for the whole summer. Until next week good gardening.”
