General information

Raspberry grade Monomakh's Cap


The popularity of remontant varieties of berry crops is growing. Particularly interested in domestic gardeners raspberry cultivation with a prolonged period fruiting Among the new remontant species, raspberry Cap Monomakh enjoys special attention, a description of which is presented in the article. Let us try to find out whether it is worth allocating a plot for growing this variety, in which place of the garden it is better to do this in order to achieve maximum yield or to prefer other crops?

Raspberry Monomakh hat: variety description

The raspberry bush of this variety looks more like a small tree: powerful, strongly branched stems reach one and a half meters in height. Formation of shoots near the bush is minimal, so this variety is usually propagated by growing green cuttings - in a manner that we will discuss below. Fruits are magnificent large berries of rich purple color, reaching from 6-7 g to 15-18 g with particularly high-quality care. It is quite suitable repair raspberry varieties for the suburbs. In productive years, one bush can give up to 5 kg of berries. The shape of the fruit is blunt-conical and somewhat elongated, the flesh is dense and easily detachable from the stem. Pleasant sweet taste of raspberry shades quite tangible acidity. Berry is excellent for fresh food and processing into desserts, compotes, confitures, jams, etc.

What is the difference between remontant varieties?

A feature of all remontant varieties of berry crops is that they give two harvests per season. The first time picking berries is carried out in the middle of summer along with the usual types of raspberries. They ripen on last year's shoots. The second harvest begins in mid-August: the berries ripen on young stalks. But Russian gardeners rarely use such a scheme: usually remontant raspberries are planted in order to maximize the late harvest, resulting in better quality, since by autumn the activity of garden pests decreases markedly.

Terms of fruiting

Raspberry variety Monomakh's hat begins to bear fruit from mid-August and does not stop until the end of October, when frosts begin. During this period, the main proportion of berries ripen. Thus, until the end of the season, more than 50-60% of the harvest is obtained. Can accelerate ripening. To do this, use a film in the spring, arranging it over the bushes like a small greenhouse on arcs. This technique allows you to avoid frost, significantly accelerate the ripening of the crop and collect it without loss.


Characteristic of remontant cultures, the insignificant formation of shoots is also related to such a species as raspberry Cap Monomakh. Description of the variety provides for difficult reproduction by traditional methods. Therefore, the most successful way is the cultivation of green cuttings in special heated greenhouses. New shoots grow from the main bush every year. In the spring they are carefully separated, cutting off below the ground level, if possible without damaging the root, and rooted in a container or greenhouse. A new “head” is formed on the bottom of the cut-off shoot and activates the growth of the seedling. In May or June, the cuttings are ready for rooting in a permanent place.

Choosing a place for raspberries

The selection of a site for planting is an important point in growing a crop. Raspberry loves fertile, well-lit and drained, necessarily neutral soils in the southern sunny parts of the garden. Absolutely does not accept swampy acidic soils or heavy soils with close groundwater abundance. This demanding crop is raspberry Monomakh's Cap. Planting should be carried out taking into account the fact that the root system of the plant is superficial and demanding on the quality of the soil. It must be breathable, loose, moist.

Check the soil reaction

To check the acidity of the soil, they resort to the old proven method: in a small amount of water they brew a few leaves of black currant and put a piece of soil into the broth from the place planned for planting. The resulting solution shade will answer the question about the degree of soil acidity. The reddish color is a reaction to the acidic soil, the greenish is slightly acidic. Neutral soils give bluish shades.

When planting a raspberry variety Monomakh Hat, it is necessary to neutralize the acidity of the soil. With high acidity, 400 g of lime powder are added to each m 2, with an average of 200 g. Wood ash is good for this purpose, not only reducing acidity, but also enriching the soil with calcium, phosphorus, potassium and other trace elements. Dolomite flour works effectively, especially on soils poor in magnesium. When applying hydrated lime to reduce the acidity of soils, it must be remembered that it is a fast-acting, but aggressive fertilizer that delivers magnesium and calcium to the soil. Therefore, it should be made in advance.

Planting raspberries

Selecting the site and preparing the soil, start planting cuttings. Raspberry Monomakh hat, a photo of which is presented, is a big fan of organic fertilizers. Therefore, it is necessary to introduce humus or a solution of well-settled manure (only not fresh) into the landing pits. You can plant raspberries in trenches. They are dug up to a depth of 35 cm, fertilized with humus and, carefully placing the seedlings, sprinkled with soil, rammed. It is important to remember that cuttings can not be deeply buried. When planting raspberries, root formation stimulants are used, for example, “Kornevin” or “Heteroauxin”. Their use significantly improves formation of the root system. The interval between the planted cuttings should be 0.7-0.8 m, thickened plantings are not just undesirable, but, shading each other, significantly reduce the yield of the bush. A special place in the procedure is given to irrigation. Many gardeners spill the soil before and after planting. Generous moisturizing also contributes to better rooting of the seedling.

Raspberry Monomakh hat: care

Periodic abundant watering - the most important condition for the good development of culture. No less important are weeding and loosening the soil. After planting, seedlings are mulched with humus or plant residues. Constant access of light and uniform illumination are achieved using trellis. This can be done as follows: at the edges of the beds with plantings of bushes, high, half-meter-long stakes are driven in between which the wire is drawn, to which the raspberry stalks are fixed. In addition, it is necessary:

• monitor the formation of excess shoots. It is removed, leaving no more than four to five plants per m 2 in order to avoid thickening,

• thin out the root processes,

• for the winter, prune all shoots, leaving hemp 2-3 cm, if it is decided to harvest only the second crop,

• after trimming the planting, sprinkle with ashes and humus,

• bend and warm for the winter if the Monomakh Hat bears fruit twice a season.

The ability of remontant varieties for long-term vegetation requires an impressive supply, so the preparation of the soil for remontant varieties must be very thorough. The annual introduction of organic matter and complex mineral fertilizers is a necessary condition for the good development and growth of this raspberry variety. The photo and description of Monomakh's Caps confirm the decorative and taste qualities of the berry. If during planting enough fertilizer was applied, then the first years of feeding raspberries are not necessary. Subsequently, annually in the spring nitrogen fertilizers are applied, activating the growth and set of leaf mass, during fruiting - phosphate and potash fertilizers (ash, superphosphate). By winter, organic matter is the main feeding, in particular, humus.

Zoned raspberry varieties are excellent for the Moscow region: wintering in areas and in the gardens of the Moscow region is well tolerated even without pruning, provided that two crops are harvested, regardless of whether they are lowered to the ground or not.

Raspberry Monomakh's Cap, a description of the variety of which is given in the article, requires proper trimming. It allows not only to increase the size of the berries, but also protects the plant from diseases and pests. It is held in late autumn with the onset of cold weather. When choosing a single autumn picking berries for the winter, the stems are cut almost at the root, thus making it impossible for the pests to spend the winter inside the bush. This explains the absence of sick and deformed fruits of the autumn harvest, which is significantly superior in quality to the summer harvest of raspberries.

If the gardener made the decision to double-harvest the berries, then sanitary pruning, which is carried out annually in autumn and early spring, comes to the fore. Be sure to cut weak, sick, broken and two-year-old dead stems. Thinning bushes is regulated and the number of stems in the bush. Usually it does not exceed 5 - 7 shoots.

Magic berry

In Russia, raspberry has always been considered a female berry. Excellent tonic qualities and a magnificent composition of fruits, according to popular beliefs and medical observations, help women to preserve youthful and elastic skin for a long time. The use of raspberries in combination with the main treatment of diseases such as articular problems, sciatica, hypertension, atherosclerosis, gastric, renal diseases, neuralgia and diabetes mellitus, greatly facilitates painful conditions. This applies equally to ordinary raspberries as well as remontant varieties, such as the Raspberry Monomakh Hat, which is easy to care for, and the pleasure of contemplating a decorative shrub and feeling great taste is immense.

Description Raspberry Cap Monomakh

Among the repair varieties of raspberries, the Monomakh's Hat, derived by Russian breeder I.V., is particularly popular. Although this variety appeared quite recently, it has already managed to win many fans.

Outwardly, raspberries look more like a tree. Its stems are quite powerful and grow to a height of one and a half meters.

Fruits are colored purple and very large in size. Usually they weigh 6-7 grams, but with ideal care they can reach 15-20 grams (they are equal in size to a small drain). Usually 4-5 kilograms of delicious berries are harvested from one bush, but under favorable conditions, the crop increases to 6-8 kilograms.

The berries have an elongated dull-conical shape and dense flesh. They are easily separated from the stalk. Characterized by a sweet taste with a noticeable sourness. Leave a pleasant aftertaste. Possess a pronounced raspberry flavor. Due to the elastic texture of the fruit, Monomakh Caps are stored longer than other varieties.

The first crop is harvested in July from last year's shoots, and the second ripens from August to November on young stems, until the first frost. Autumn harvest twice the spring and is not affected by pests.

There are almost no spikes on the shoots. In addition, they are mainly located at the bottom, which makes it convenient to pick berries.

This variety is quite frost resistant. It easily withstands 25 ° of frost. But in those areas where winter is too harsh, shoots are recommended to bend down to the ground and cover with snow.

Cap Monomakh almost does not give shoots. Therefore, for reproduction using seedlings or cuttings. Cuttings (their length should be about 15 centimeters) are cut slightly below the level of the soil and rooted in special containers, and after a month they are transplanted into moist soil to a permanent place. You can also prepare cuttings in the fall. In this case, they are placed in boxes and put into the basement until spring.

For planting should pick up a fertile and well-lit area in the southern part of the garden. Ground should be neutral, wet and breathable. For this raspberry variety, heavy, acidic and swampy soils are completely unsuitable.

Neutralize the soil using lime powder. If the soil is highly acidic, then 400 grams of flour per square meter are introduced, and if it is medium acid, then 200 grams. You can also use wood ash (it will not only reduce the acidity of the soil, but also enrich it with mineral elements) or dolomite flour.

Cap Monomakh loves organic fertilizer. Therefore, in each hole (its depth - 30-35 centimeters) make humus or settled manure. Seedlings sprinkled with earth, tamped and watered. Then, from plant residues or humus make mulch. When planting, the root collar should be level with the ground. If you raise it too high, then the root is exposed. At a low arrangement rotting is possible. The distance between the cuttings - 70-80 centimeters.

Saplings with an open root system are planted in spring or autumn, and with a closed one - at any time of the year.

Be sure to loosen the soil to saturate it with oxygen. But it is necessary to act carefully so as not to damage the root system located on the surface.

To ensure uniform illumination of the bushes, use the tapestry.

In the first year, raspberries do not need fertilizers. Then, every spring you need to make nitrogen supplements (50 grams of fertilizer is diluted in a water bucket) to activate foliage growth, in the summer potash and phosphorus fertilizers (about 50 grams of fertilizer are applied per square meter) to stimulate fruiting. Organic fertilizers are applied 3 times during the growing season. It is best to use the infusion of chicken manure (it is bred at a ratio of 1:20) or cow manure (1:10).

Feeding is recommended after rain. It is desirable that the weather was warm.

Cap Monomakh requires proper trimming. If the gardener has decided to receive only the autumn harvest, then in late autumn the shoots are cut to the root. If he wishes to harvest twice, then in the spring and in the fall they do sanitary pruning, removing diseased, damaged and two-year-old stems. In the bush usually leave 5-7 shoots.

To prevent the development of diseases, it is necessary to regularly cut the bushes, as well as to produce preventive treatment with fungicides in early spring.

High Harvest Secrets

To get high yields of raspberry, you must:

  • plant bushes in neutral soil
  • select well-lit areas protected from wind for planting,
  • timely fertilize,
  • regularly loosen the soil
  • prevent the soil from drying out,
  • remove excess ovary
  • correctly trim the bushes.

Advantages and disadvantages

Disadvantages Monomakh Caps - increased susceptibility to viral diseases (chlorosis, yellow mosaic, curly) and dependence on climatic conditions. With an excess of moisture berries become watery and not very sweet, and when it is deficient - small. When the soil acidity changes, the berries become shallow, their taste and appearance change. In addition, if the cold starts early, then not all fruits have time to ripen.

But these disadvantages are offset by many advantages:

  • large berries,
  • high yields
  • the presentation of fruits,
  • long period of fruiting,
  • relatively long storage,
  • good transportability
  • the ability of the berries to ripen on the cut off shoot,
  • ability to resist pests
  • high frost resistance.

Monomakh's hat is a new variety, which has not yet become widespread. Therefore, there are few reviews about it.

Gardeners do not agree on the taste of raspberries. Some claim excellent taste of the berries, while others believe that the fruits are not sweet enough. But no one denies the high yield and impressive size of the berries.

Experienced gardeners argue that it is better to grow the Monomakh's Cap in the southern regions of Russia, since in the northern climate, due to the early frosts, most of the crop does not have time to ripen.

The great disadvantage of Monomakh's Caps is the tendency to be affected by viral diseases, especially “crumbling”, in which the bushes become dwarf, and the berries become shallow and crumble. Sometimes the virus does not affect the growth of bushes and it is only possible to determine a diseased plant when a crop appears. Often, when a crush occurs, there is a yellowing of the leaf plate between the veins and the appearance of a pale yellow mosaic pattern.

Treat viral diseases is almost impossible. Sick bushes need to dig and destroy. For the prevention of viral diseases you need to fight with aphids, nematodes and cicadas.

Gardeners reviews

Cap Monomakh. The bush consists of 3-4 powerful, slightly drooping, strongly branched shoots. Spines are rare, but tough, concentrated at the bottom of the stem. Differs unusually large berries (average weight - 6.5–6.9 g, maximum over 10–15 g, in areas of amateur gardeners up to 20 g, the size of an average plum). Berries elongated, stupidly-conical, dense, ruby-colored, satisfactorily separated from the fruit tree. The beginning of the ripening of berries is mid-August, the fruiting period is extended. The potential productivity is very high - up to 5.5 kg of berries from a bush, but before the autumn frosts begin to ripen about half of the crop (2-2.5 kg from a bush).


Large-fruited remontant variety of selection Kazakova I.V. Куст невысокий (1.5 м), в виде деревца Потенциальная продуктивность очень высокая до 5.5 кг ягод с куста Сорт требователен к повышенному уходу. Сорт ХХI века.

Дмитро, Донецк

На мой запрос по этому сорту я получил от Евдокименко С.Н. (зам. КАЗАКОВА) такой ответ: «Шапка Мономаха Не зарегистрирован. He became greatly amazed by the virus and we stopped multiplying it. I think that in its pure form it is hardly anywhere else. ”


Raspberry Monomakh hat with standard care will give a wonderful harvest if planted on neutral soil and well watered. A serious drawback is the tendency to viral diseases, but with the timely elimination of diseased bushes, this variety can be grown and enjoyed large and tasty berries.

Main characteristic

The variety was bred not so long ago by the well-known Russian breeder I. V. Kazakov, who managed to realize the dreams of many gardeners - he created raspberry bushes that produce large and tasty fruits twice a season.

Externally, the plant looks like a young branched tree 150–170 cm high. 4–5 strong shoots, which are abundantly covered with branches, usually grow from one shrub. The first are the fruits of last year's shoots, closer to the second half of summer - the young. A nice feature of the variety is the minimum content of thorns, which are located on the lower part of the plant.

Fruits juicy purple with a pronounced raspberry flavorpleasant to taste, sweet with a slight sourness, the shape is dull-conical. The size depends on the irrigation and soil composition: the better the growing conditions, the larger the fruit (up to 15–20 g), the average weight of the berries is 6–8 g. During the summer, from 4 to 8 kg of berries suitable for consumption can be harvested fresh and cooking sweet dishes (preserves, jams, syrups, jelly, compotes and other things). The flesh is juicy, soft, easily separated from the stalk.

The raspberry remontant Cap Monomakh does not form a young growth, therefore it propagates by grafting. It tolerates winter well, but in the presence of particularly severe frosts, it is worth covering the bushes with snow flooring. In order to achieve earlier fruiting over raspberries, arcs are installed that are covered with film; the next crop is taken from mid-August until October.

Description and characteristics of raspberry Monomakh's Cap

Very little is known about the history of the creation of a variety - it belongs to the category of recently bred and is the creation of the hands of the famous Russian breeder I. V. Kazakov.

Large berries of raspberry Monomakh's Hat have a dark maroon shade

In appearance, the Monomakh's Cap could be attributed to the so-called raspberry trees, since the plant looks like a small tree up to one and a half meters tall, consisting of 4–5 tall, slightly drooping shoots. On their lower parts there are thorns that do not interfere with the harvest.

The berries are medium and large, reaching a weight of 7–8 g, but there are known specimens weighing three times the average. Under normal conditions, 4–5 kg of berries are harvested from one bush, but if weather conditions are favorable for the plant, then 6–8 kg can be obtained. True, this is probably possible in the southern regions, where the warm climate favors the extended period of fruiting. The fruits have a slightly elongated shape with a blunt end. The color is maroon or purple. In taste, acid and sugar content are well combined, and the aroma is truly raspberry.

The main distinctive feature of the variety is its repair - the ability to produce a crop in two rounds. The first matures on last year's shoots, the second - on the young. As a rule, the second wave of berries stretches in time, and in regions in a temperate continental climate, it only has time to manifest itself.

The advantages and disadvantages of the variety

The taste of berries Monomakh hats - one of its advantages. The excellent combination of sourness and sweetness in the presence of a bright raspberry flavor make this berry a welcome dish on the summer table. That is, using it fresh is one of the best uses of the crop.

Productivity also pleases, 5 kg from a bush is an average indicator. If you live in the southern region, or suddenly a lingering warm autumn has stood out, then you can get a lot more berries before frosts come. In addition, the harvest harvested in the fall is of higher quality, since many pests do not disturb raspberries at this time. And given that sometimes the plant surprises in the form of individual berries weighing 20 g, the cultivation of this culture becomes more interesting.

High yield is something for which the variety is praised first of all. Cap Monomakh

The berries are easily removed from the stem, and due to the dense flesh they tolerate transportation and storage.

Variety shows relative resistance to cold. Winters to -25 ° C are not a big problem for him. But for better preservation before the onset of frosts, it is advisable to cover the bush.

By the way, the main problem of Monomakh’s Caps is its vulnerability to viral diseases, which prevents the variety from becoming more widespread among gardeners. Cases of the so-called “crumbling” are especially known when the berries fall apart into compound grains and fall off the bush - this is a consequence of the defeat of the bushy dwarfism plant.

The strong dependence of raspberries on the weather conditions in some cases prevents it from displaying its best qualities - the berries grow watery and are not saturated with sugars to the necessary degree. Moreover, in central Russia, the cold comes early enough and does not allow a significant part of the berries to ripen on the bushes. On average, they manage to take up to 60% of the crop in the second wave of fruiting.

Not everyone is satisfied with the sensitivity of the plant to the level of soil acidity. With a neutral indicator, the bush develops according to all the rules, but as soon as a deviation occurs, the size of the berries, the appearance and taste of the berries will suffer.

Planting and breeding

Repair raspberry, like any other, loves sunny places where the soil warms up well. In this case, the site should be protected from drafts, and groundwater should not be closer than 1.5–2 meters to the soil surface. Although raspberry loves moisture, its excessive amount will ruin the plant. An excellent option for planting a sapling or raspberry cutting is the south side of the plot near the house or other buildings - if only the shadow does not fall on the bush.

You can plant raspberries with an equal share of success in spring and autumn. In the second case, the weather must be chosen warm to improve the survival rate of the plant. Particular attention should be paid to the root system of the seedling. If it is open, then it should be planted in the spring (before the beginning of the growing season) or in the fall. A seedling with a closed root system is planted during the entire growing season, since in this case the plant quickly develops both the underground and above-ground parts, and the first crop can mature in just three months after planting.

  1. Raspberries are planted in planting pits with a width and depth of 30 cm. If several bushes are planted at once, then the distance between them is set in a meter, and 1.5 - 2 meters are left between the rows.
  2. Before each planting, two spoons of superphosphate mixed with a small amount of ash and soil are placed in each well.
  3. Then the seedling is immersed in the hole and the roots are covered with earth, making sure that no voids are formed.
  4. The root neck must be flush with the ground. Its too high position exposes the root system, and too low exposes it to the risk of rotting.
  5. After planting, each plant is poured with a bucket of water and mulch the bed with peat or humus. In two weeks you will understand how well the plant has taken root.

In addition to planting seedlings, you can propagate reparative raspberries using green cuttings. Applying shoots is problematic - too little of it is formed in the bush.

  1. In late spring, shoots grown to 5 cm are pruned at a shallow depth and dug along with the ground, after which they are transplanted into moist soil. In less than a month, these cuttings will take root.
  2. If it happens in the fall, then take cuttings 15 cm long and no more than 2 mm thick and placed in boxes in a cool room. It is important not to overdry them during storage.
  3. In early spring, cuttings are planted in a mixture of peat and sand and transferred to the greenhouse for one or two weeks. As soon as they reach a height of 30 cm, they are transplanted into open ground.

Watering and loosening

Raspberry loves water - she will be glad to water almost every day. If the weather is rainy, then airing is necessary to avoid rotting. That is why the bushes are planted at a distance of one meter from each other, and between the rows they are kept at intervals up to two meters.

To the soil around the bush is saturated with oxygen, it must be periodically loosened. But it should be remembered that raspberries have a shallow root system, and it is very easy to touch it when loosening. Therefore, this procedure is carried out to a depth of 7 cm at a distance of one meter from the bush, being careful.

Drip irrigation is sometimes the best option, given that remontant raspberry loves daily watering.


Raspberry is very responsive to supplements - both organic and mineral. Of the first, the infusion of chicken manure diluted in a ratio of 1:20, which can be replaced by cow (1:10), is particularly useful. This is done on average 3 times per season.

June — July is a good time to apply fertilizers containing nitrogen (1-2 times) - 2 tablespoons per 10 liters of water. Between dressings maintain an interval of 2-3 weeks. In July — August, raspberries are fed with potassium and phosphorus at the rate of 40–60 g per square meter.

It is best to feed after rain, especially in warm weather. It is very important to strictly follow the proportions indicated by the manufacturer on the package with fertilizer.

The first feeding is usually carried out immediately after the snow melts. Nitrogen-containing fertilizers are not recommended to apply closer to the end of the summer and autumn, so that the plant has time to prepare for winter.

Pruning raspberries is quite simple and at the same time allows to increase the yield. Conduct this procedure after fruiting, when stable frosts are established. At this time, all shoots are cut to the ground, since only the root system should be spent for the winter. By the way, leaving only the roots, you significantly increase the chances of the safety of raspberries, than if you left the shoots, bending them to the ground under the shelter.

Cut off the shoots are best burned - it will serve as prevention of pests.

You can cut the raspberries in the spring - choose the time either before the blooming of the kidneys, or immediately after they open. It often happens that the spring pruning saves the plant in case of strong thaws from freezing, when the raspberries, having rejoiced at the “early spring”, begin to produce young shoots. In the spring, you can also remove dried branches or cut to the first living buds, if they are not completely dry.

In late spring or summer, when the plant reaches a height of half a meter, pruning can be done, leaving 5-6 strongest shoots. After pruning the beds with raspberries sprinkled with ash and humus.

Preparing for the winter

Preparing for winter is a moment that requires a separate conversation. It depends on how successful cultivation of a variety can be in those regions where winter temperatures can drop to -30 ° C. The rules for the preparation of remontant raspberries practically do not differ from those that are applicable to common raspberries, unless the terms are shifted, taking into account the protracted period of fruiting.

Growing raspberry Cap Monomakh as an annual crop is good because in this case there are more chances to preserve the plant in winter. As soon as after the first frost raspberry leaves wilted, it is time to cut off all the stems, leaving only small hemp above the ground. Now it remains only to find a suitable mulch - be it peat, foliage, or other covering material. The main thing is not to overdo it with the thickness of the mulch layer, otherwise, in warm winters, there is a chance that the roots will root out, and we really need them.

Pruning raspberry shoots to the ground makes life easier for both the gardener and the plant, because only the roots remain that will survive the cold more easily than the above-ground part

So, the rules for preparing remontrant raspberries for winter are as follows:

  • In the summer and autumn, raspberries are fed with fertilizers based on phosphorus and potassium in order to ripen better.
  • If you have saved last year’s branches, then after they produce a crop, they are cut. Now the bush will focus on the remaining young shoots, which will give the second wave of harvest.

Consider that the raspberry fruit will be to the very frost, so do not rush to cut off the shoots of the current season in advance.

  • Water-charging irrigation, carried out before the onset of winter, will saturate the earth with moisture and help the roots to survive the cold season more easily. Under no circumstances should the earth remain dry.
  • Foliage of trees and shrubs is one of the best options for mulch for roots.
  • If you decide to leave the young shoots next year, then bend them as close as possible to the ground and tie them to a peg. One important point is that the stems seized by frosts lose their elasticity and can break or crack when they are bent to the ground. Therefore, if you do not cut off the shoots to the ground, then choose the time for the garter before the first frost.
  • If the climate in your region involves harsh winters with little snow, then you should additionally cover the shoots crouched to the ground to protect them from the cold.
  • With a high probability of weathering snow from the site set cordons in the organization of snow retention. And if you have the opportunity to get to the site after the first snow falls, rake it closer to the roots to supply them with a snow cap.
  • In the spring, it is important to untie the branches in time and straighten them, as well as to clear the mulch layer, until it hits under the influence of heat.
  • Diseases and pests

    The repair raspberry is good because it is rarely attacked by pests, and it is resistant to most diseases, including fungi. However, this does not mean that after planting you can not worry at all about the bushes. Sometimes on its leaves and shoots you can find aphids, caterpillars or spider mites. And the variety “Monomakh's Cap” is generally “famous” for its instability against viral diseases, for example, dwarf bushiness.
