Do Brazel Berries Raspberry Shortcake attract aphids?
JANE H on Mar 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If aphids are problematic/present on your other raspberries and garden plants, they will more than likely visit this plant as well.
What size container should each plant be planted?
Pamela E on Feb 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question! The BrazelBerry can be planted in a 20-24" container.
Does this need winter protection in zone 8A and what size container should it be planted in?
Sherry F on Feb 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your inquiry. The BrazelBerry shouldn't need winter protection in your location and should be allowed to go dormant each winter. You can plant this item in a 20-24" container.
Hello. Is this a 1 year plant? And how large is the container? Thank you!
Janice F on Feb 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question! The raspberry will be in a quart-sized pot and is 6-12 months old when we ship.
I live in SE Indiana, so I guess I should be placing my pot in the garage? Will it need to be in a sunny location, and how often should it be watered? Mine has filled out nicely, but did not bloom a single blossom this Spring/Summer. It is in a location that gets sun pretty much all day. It is in a 24" diameter plastic pot.
Teresa Y on Jul 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Since this variety is recommended for zones 5-9, you can leave it outdoors if you are within this zone range; however, if you would prefer moving the plant into your garage for winter protection, remember to water it when the soil feels dry below the top layer. You do not need to provide a sunny location when you move the plant for winter protection. A cool, dark place, like a garage/shed/cellar, will help maintain the plant's dormancy until the weather warms again in spring.
I live in zone 10A; can I grow the BrazelBerries?? Raspberry Shortcake??? here? Can I plant it in the ground? or will a container work best?
Betty S on May 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If you are living in a zone that is not recommended for the plant, it is difficult to advise for success. Whether you choose to plant it in the ground or in a container, you should consider providing a temporary shade structure during the hotter months for protection.
What would the winter care be if grown in a container in zone 4?
l t on Apr 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Mulch and prune, just like you would if it was planted in the ground. Water only when the soil is dry to the touch. Keep it in a cool, dark area (garage, basement, shed, etc.) to encourage and maintain dormancy. Move outdoors when temperatures warm again (consistently above freezing) in spring.
I live in 8b. What will be required for winter care?
Penny on Mar 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Mulch if your raspberry plant is in the ground. Mulch if it's in a container, too, but be sure that the soil/potting medium in the container does not dry out over winter. You don't need to water very often, just when the soil feels dry beneath the top layer and just enough to keep the soil/potting medium damp. Dry roots are more susceptible to winter injury than damp roots. If you expect a hard freeze, you can move the container into a protected area, but this raspberry should be able to withstand winter outdoors in zone 8B.

Texas Pot Raspberry
Bought one from nursery last year. Came through summer and winter in pot like a champ. Fruited from spring to summer last year.

Every interested in the other Brazelberries. Buying 3 from stark this year. All the ones I bought in the past did not make it in the ground. The small one (can't remember the name) I kept in a pot survived and is about gallon size this year. Not sure I want to put it in the ground.
