Raspberries grow best in a sunny position but also, unlike many fruits, they will also grow successfully in a partially shaded spot. The more sun, the more fruit.

The planting site needs rich and well-drained soil, great air circulation, and shelter from wind. Avoid a wet area, as well as a windy spot, as raspberries do not like to stand in water nor totally dry out.


All across Denmark there are around farms where you can choose and pick blackcurrants yourself!

  • USES

Raspberries offer a lot of nice and sweet flavor and can be used in many ways.

For example, if you have a lot of raspberries left, make a jam. Or to freeze them for later. Or dehydrate them as these raspberries are perfect for trail mix or homemade granola.

If you’d rather enjoy them fresh, eat them straight out of the garden! You can also make smoothies, muffins or even toss them into salads! They taste especially great in spinach salads.

Raspberry leaves can be used fresh or dried in herbal teas, providing an astringent flavor. In herbal and traditional medicine, raspberry leaves are used for some remedies, although there is no scientifically valid evidence to support their medicinal use.

Raspberry plants should not be planted where potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, or bulbs have previously been grown, without prior fumigation of the soil. These crops are hosts for the disease Verticillium wilt, a fungus that can stay in the soil for many years and can infest the raspberry crop.
