A new way to grow Cranberries?

2 Dec

Not too long ago I received word from a reader who is growing Cranberries in a different way. Check out these photos and descriptions of how he is doing it.

The plants grow in 1,3 meter planters on a frame of old 51 mm heating pipes. Everything had to be cheap because I didn’t know if this way of growing will work  about 8 years ago. It turned out quite well. So I gowing to plant 3 times more meters tabletop this winter. I’m looking now for a good variety, perhaps you have some suggestions. Over here it is diffcult to become the newest variety’s with good potentials. I have collected Pilgrim, Stevens, Red Star, Crowley and Langlois. Stevens is my main variety. It has a good dark red color because the sun can reach all the berry’s and they drys quikly what is good for storage.

I sent also a few fotos from the tabletopframe to give you an impression.

If anyone wants to chat with this grower, send me a message and I will get you in touch…
