Features of cultivation

When growing, it is recommended to carry out a tapping to the grinding to increase the yield of plants. Ringing raspberry varieties Patricia in the ground is carried out in the spring, before the start of the deploration. The autumn requires preliminary preparation of soil, it is started in summer, and plants transfer to a new place after October 1.
Choosing a place and soil preparation
When selecting a suitable place for raspberry Patricia, you need to pay attention to plants in the neighborhood. For example, it is not necessary to have a bush near strawberries and Parenic – they have a number of common diseases. The variety grows well on chernozem or squealed soils, prefers a weakly acidic environment. On heavy loam, shoots will not grow. The area is better to choose an open, patricia is not scary direct impact of sun rays.
In addition to good lighting, plants are important lack of shadow and drafts. The preparation of the soil on the selected area depends on the type of soil. For the sandy will need additional introduction of nitrogen fertilizers. It is enough to pre-move the soil with manure or chicken litter, humus, and then leave it for 6 months. On the prepared platform, pits are forming a depth of 40-50 cm; a mixture of fertilizers and organic solids are laid in them.
Shooting last year is cut to a height of 0.8-1.2 m. Young stroke must be removed, leaving 6-10 main branches. If this measure is refusing, the plant will distribute the forces not to fruiting, but on the extension of the green mass. All unnecessary elements are removed before they fix the color of the crust.
The main trimming is carried out in the autumn period. Branches are removed, fruiting this year, young shoots retain until spring. After wintering, the extinct and dried branches are cleaned, healthy plants cut the tops. In the summer, pruning is also shown to the level of the Toplar.
Frost resistance and preparation for winter

Diseases and pests
Variety susceptible to phytoofluoride. Resistance to purple spottedness, Botritis and anthracnose high. Breeders note that in the plant there is a gene that scares the TRU.
The main method of breeding – shilling. From the Raspberry Clutter, Patricia separate healthy young shoots with elastic roots and 3-4 kidneys at the base. For cutting it is better to choose the period of early spring, when the leaves have not yet begun to actively appear. Autumn cuttings cut and plant 30 days before the start of frosts.
A large number of roasting processes markedly facilitates the spread of raspberry patricia. They can be painlessly separating from the mother’s bush, grabbing the earth. The wells for landing are preparing in advance.
Owners of Raspberry Bustokers Patricia consider this variety one of the best among large-scale. It provides an abundant harvest, not too demanding in care.

If they have to be transported, the crop is removed with the fruit. In addition, Patricia very badly tolerates the defeat of the phytoofluoro, it needs to be protected from contact with the sources of this disease, avoid the thickening of shoots.
