To loosen necessary after watering to a depth of about 6 cm, while near the bushes to do it carefully as the root system of the raspberry close to the surface. During the cultivation, needs a bit of Spud shoots.
Abundant watering and «tasty» dressing
Watered the raspberries as needed. If the summer is rainy, the procedure may be waived, and in dry periods it is necessary to moisten the planting every 2-3 weeks. Watering raspberries need rich, for one hive should have about 10 liters of moisture.
Note that waterlogging culture is also not tolerate. Stagnant moisture can lead to rotting of the root system.
To make fertilizer for everbearing raspberries should be three times during the vegetation season. The first child should be held in March. At this time dumped on the raspberry the compost (2 buckets per 1 m2) and ammonium nitrate (15 g) and urea (10 g).
A second foliar application should be made during flowering. In 10 liters of water to dissolve 3 tablespoons of double superphosphate and 2 tablespoons of potassium sulfate. This amount of fertilizer is enough for 1 sq. m.
In the autumn after the fruiting period (usually in the second half of September) spend a third child. The nutrient solution is prepared from:

This procedure is quite simple. In October or November of shears, cut all shoots to ground level. For the winter in the ground leaving only the roots, so the frost resistance in the variety is excellent. However, this pruning fruiting on one-year shoots will come much later. To obtain an early harvest, you can leave part of annual shoots, tie them and bend to the ground, and in the spring before Bud break and will have to be shortened to 25 cm.
Since «Caramel» gives a large number of root seedlings, the procedure pruning is performed in summer. In June you should remove all weak shoots and shoots. The stems are cut near the base of the roots. During this procedure leave 5-6 of the most powerful escapes in the Bush.
