    Maintenance Notes: 

    It is good to do a pruning check each year in the winter or very early spring, before buds have started to green up. Check for and remove any crossing branches.

    Will grow in lightly shaded areas, but berry production will decrease if there is too much shade. 

    Enjoys freely draining soil with average moisture. If planted in sandy soil, more frequent waterings will be needed. To retain moisture and cut down on the necessity of hand watering, apply a layer of mulch.
