to grow in a container how many plants should be in one container, and what size container do you suggest?
Deborah R on May 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have raspberries in both 5 and 15 gallon pots. They are healthy and bearing in both sizes, but I would recommend the larger pots after a few years. I have been using Starks raspberry fertilizer in addition to a little compost. I am pleased with the yields.
Do these thornless raspberries have runners like regular raspberries?
Tammy S on May 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: They do have runners. You can either prune them off to contain the plant, or divide and replant them to multiple your raspberry patch.
Does the raspberry shortcake collection come bare root or in containers?
Jami H on Jun 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: All of the plants in this Collection are bare-root.

This will be the second season for my raspberries; they are growing vigorously and are setting LOTS of berries. STARK Brothers price on the set was unbeatable and the fact that they are dwarf is perfect as I do not have a lot of space in my yard. These plants were a quality product at a fantastic price and I would highly recommend them to any raspberry lover!

Half of the plants died
Since planting these six raspberry plants last year, only 3 have survived. The ones that lived are producing raspberries now & we are happy with them. But disappointed that half of the plants didn't make it.

Growing like crazy!
This is only the first full year that we have had these berries. I do expect them to fruit this summer but I can certainly tell you that they are growing so much! There are so many new canes that have come up already. I am anticipating a great harvest!

Might be a ph issue
I tried these a couple times with very little success, I am guessing it’s a ph issue but I have been able to successfully amend soil in Colorado for blueberries so these should not even be that hard. I do grow other raspberries that I bought locally so I am not sure what’s up. They seem a little temperamental

all survived, but no harvest yet
This is a great value bundle, but I have not had much luck with these raspberries. They all survived their first year, and I have many baby plants this spring, but the original plants did not grow large and bushy as I would have expected. I knew to not expect much the first year, which was good, as we got about 3-4 berries from just one plant. I've amended the soil this year and am trying to water more consistently. I believe they may not be getting enough sun where they are, so I may move my berry patch if we have limited success again this year.

Raspberry collection
I bought my raspberries last year and I had some of them die and I tried to call and the wait was to long.
