We were walking in the state parks again today, what a lovely area to live, there is always a trail where you haven't gone. Bruce wanted to hike up the mountain trail, which was way steep, and I am very outta shape, so I convinced him to go the less mountainous route which was just great for me. We hiked 3 or 4 miles for about 1 1/2 hours. What a great weekend we had.
Anyway, we saw lots of wild blackraspberries, but they were little and full of seeds. Any of you know about growing raspberries in raised beds or in big barrels where they will be contained?
Hi! and welcome to GF> I grow black berries for my guy's I can't eat them allergic to them, but I make pie and muffins with mine. I just moved our's this spring and they are doing wonderful. I prune out the dead wood in the fall and let the new take over as needed. We always get tons of berries from just 4 plants. Hope your's grow well for you.
I'm not sure a raised bed would keep the raspberries contained. They do like to spread. That is one of the things that will keep me busy once I get them established where I want them. I did make the rows wide enough so I could drive the tractor through and keep them mowed though, so it will be easier than it was in the past. is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to
