  • the site should be well protected from strong northerly winds;
  • it is advisable to choose a place where a significant amount of snow accumulates in the winter;

  • if necessary, soil liming is carried out with special compounds or ordinary wood ash;
  • the soil should be deeply digged, and it is also necessary to remove all weed vegetation and make the necessary nutritional complexes.

You can plant yellow raspberry bushes in rows or use the strip method of planting. Between the rows it is required to leave a distance of 1.5-2 meters, and in the row between the seedlings there should be a distance of about 50-60 cm.
