Brambles: IN-PERSON Workshop

  • Saturday, March 26, 2022, 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Raspberries, blackberries, and everything in between... There are many bramble varieties to choose from, and this workshop will go over the major characteristics that can help you decide which brambles are right for you. Join Cornell Small Fruits Specialist Anya Osatuke who will review the biology, care, and quirks of different bramble crops. The Tuesday evening Zoom class will guide you through site requirements, choosing the right varieties for your needs, and how to prune a planting to maximize plant health and fruit production. We will review symptoms and treatment options for several bramble diseases. The Saturday workshop will offer a tour of a raspberry planting and review pruning and trellising methods. Join for one or both classes.
