How to Grow Blackberries
and Raspberries

 
 

Planting Site and Soil

Raspberry Shortcake® and Baby Cakes™ perform best in a fairly neutral soil with a pH of 6.5–7.5. This soil and location should also be well-drained and in full sun. If your summers are extremely hot, these two varieties will perform best in some afternoon shade to protect them from too much heat.

 

All of the varieties in the Bushel and Berry™ collection will thrive in patio pots, edible gardens or in the ground for years to come. We recommend a large pot as big as 24 to 36-inches up to a half-whiskey barrel. Remember, this is a cane berry that will continue to grow shoots which will eventually fill the pot.


Tip: Remember, plants and their roots in patio pots dry out faster, especially on warm summer days. It's important to water daily and ensure the pot has good drainage
