 Small fruits thrive best in fertile, sandy loam soil high in organic matter, but they will give good
returns on the average garden soil under adequate fertilization and good cultural practices. Since the amount of fertilizer to apply depends on the small fruit to be grown and the age of the plant, separate recommendations are listed in this leaflet for each small fruit.
