Four experiments aimed to assess the success of cloudberry establishment and its productivity in abandoned cutover peatland. Two experiments tested the length of the rhizomes (15, 20 and 25 cm) and the depth of planting (5 and 10 cm). One of these showed that the rhizomes should be at least 20 cm long and be planted at a depth of 5 cm to obtain better survival, whereas the other was inconclusive. The advantage of autumn over spring planting for the survival of cloudberry rhizomes was highlighted.
