Stem berry crops have recently become very popular in home gardening and are increasingly found in our country, gradually crowding out traditional varieties. Stack raspberries became known to domestic gardeners relatively recently, but have already managed to declare themselves as a promising and sought-after berry culture with high productivity indicators.
Of course, the standard is one of the most convenient in terms of placement on the site and care forms, which, thanks to the positive characteristics, has been recognized by gardeners and is widely used in home gardening in our country. Stack raspberries are able to reach two meters high, but such a berry plant does not require special pruning or the use of additional support, and a ripening abundant crop does not bend the branches to the soil.
An important advantage of this form is the high productivity of the plant, as well as the formation of large, salable berries, which successfully combine excellent taste and a pleasant berry aroma. Most standard varieties are characterized by the formation of sufficiently dense, not crumbling and suitable for long-term transportation of fruits. Thus, gardeners have a great opportunity to get maximum yield from a minimum planting area.
The best and most promising varieties of standard raspberry or raspberry tree fruit in the period from June to August, a more accurate crop ripening period may vary depending on the soil conditions at the planting site, as well as climatic and weather characteristics of the cultivation region. Usually, such varieties are highly resistant to diseases and pests, and they are also able to withstand without shelter a drop in temperature in the winter to -20-24 ° C, which is due to the numerous positive reviews about standard raspberries.

Any variety of standard raspberries can be planted both in spring and in autumn. Spring planting is carried out approximately in mid-April, before the active sap flow of plants. Autumn planting is carried out at the beginning of October or in the last ten days of September, with mandatory soil pumping to the lower kidneys of the plant.
Stamp varieties can be planted in a bush or tape method:
Important to rememberthat for spring planting, the soil on the site should be prepared in autumn, and for autumn planting, preparation is carried out about a month and a half before planting.
Properly planted berry bushes can form decent fruiting in one place for fifteen years, but experienced gardeners recommend updating the area under the berry crops every ten years, due to the risk of soil depletion, as well as a decrease in productivity and quality characteristics of the berry.
Stack raspberries, due to their high productivity, need competent agricultural technology. The main care for berry plantations consists in strict observance of the following rules of the technology of growing crops:
In autumn, after fruiting, the side shoots should be cut, which will allow the plant to prepare well for winter frosts and have a positive effect on the yield of the next year.
