Boysenberry Questions

1. Can I plant boysenberries?

Yes, you can plant boysenberries in New Zealand. They prefer a full sun or partial shade position and a well-drained soil.

Planting boysenberries involves:

  1. Choose a well-drained location in full sun or partial shade.
  2. Dig a hole that is twice as wide as the root ball of the plant.
  3. Mix compost or other organic matter with the soil.
  4. Place the plant in the hole and backfill with soil, firming it down gently to remove any air pockets.
  5. Water the plant well after planting.
  6. Mulch around the base of the plant to help retain moisture and suppress weeds.

Boysenberries need regular watering, especially during the first year after planting. Water the plants once a week, more often if the weather is hot and dry.

  4. Water and fertilise regularly. Water them once a week and more often if the weather is hot and dry. Feed them once a month during the growing season with a balanced fertiliser.

7. Do boysenberries fruit on new or old wood?

Boysenberries, like many brambles, fruit on old wood. This means they produce fruit on canes that grew the previous year, also called floricanes. These canes are typically brown and woody, with visible scars from where the previous year's berries were attached.

The current year's growth, called primocanes, are green and flexible and won't produce fruit until the following year. Their main role is to grow vegetatively and establish themselves for next season's fruiting.
