Anyway to grow raspberries in a pot?

emorems0(PA - 6a)February 10, 2014

We are currently renting and will likely be relocated within the next year (honestly, I'm surprised it hasn't happened yet). I would LOVE to grow raspberries and grapes and other fruit plants, but I've put it off because I don't want to invest the time and money in something we can't take with us. I have a couple blueberry plants in pots that have done okay, but what about bigger, vining plants like raspberries and grapes? Is there anyway to grow those in a pot? We'll likely be at our next location for 5 years or so and I'd transplant them to the ground when that happens... but, I'm tired of waiting and want raspberries now!

Yes, you can definitely grow raspberries in pots, as well as grapes and a variety of other fruits. For inspiration, take a look at fruitnut's results with potted grapes and blackberries. For good background reading on how to successfully grow plants of all types in pots, check out these two threads in the Container forum...

Here's a photo of my baba raspberries (the two on the right) growing on my patio in San Diego. I'm using 5:1:1 mix in #5 black plastic pots in decorative cache pots.

Monrovia is also selling the 'RaspberryShortcake'. You might be able to order it locally from a good garden center. Pots may need winter protection so the roots don't freeze (and die).
