Has anyone grown raspberries in a raised bed, and if so, what soil mix did you use? Mel's mix? I've read that they prefer soil a bit more acidic, so I wanted to see if anyone has experience with this.

I used the Mel's mix just fine.Certainly if your raspberries are not doing well it is advisable to do a soil test including pH.

There are certain pursuits which, if not wholly poetic and true, do at least suggest a nobler and finer relation to nature than we know. The keeping of bees, for instance. ~ Henry David Thoreau
