How much space to I need to grow berry bushes?


Answer by  Aline (114)

It really depends on the plants themselves. Plants like bluberries don't really need a lot space if you are only growing one they just need sandy soil. However larger bushes like Blackberries need enough space so they can really grow. They tend to get to be about four or five feet in circumfrance so keep size in mind when planting.

Gooseberries or currants can be grown with only about three or four square feet. Raspberries and blueberries will need slightly more. Most bushes grow as wide as they are tall.

In order to grow berry bushes you will need to space them about 6 to 8 feet apart, this will ensure that when they grow to their full potential they are not crowding each other.

They will do just fine planted as close as 12 inches apart. Just measure off the amount of space you want to use. Then determine how many plants it will take to fill your area.

It depends on the berry bush; for example my blackberry bush is about 4.5" tall and is against a wall, so sideways it takes up about 5 feet.


Answer by  thewindrose (642)

It depends on how many bushes you are planning on growing and what type you want to grow. Blueberry bushes, for example need a lot of space. Plan on five to six feet between each bush. Raspberry canes, however, usually only need one and a half to two feet of distance between plants.

It depends on what type of berries you want to plant. Blueberry bushes needs to be planted 6 feet apart while raspberry bushes can be planted much closer together.
