where to plant caroline raspberry
I just bought a lovely Caroline raspberry plant in a pot and I'm debating where to plant it. My situation is a bit limited so no place is ideal, but here are the options:
1) Plant in already existing raised beds that have had tomatoes in them in the past and have shown signs of verticillium.
2) Make a new raised bed or plant in ground, but close to the tomato beds because that's one of my few sunny spots.
(worried the plant will still get verticillium).
3) Plant in a container on my deck. (Do container planted fruits taste as good as in-ground plants?)
4) Pull a patch of wild black caps and make a raised bed there - risk of disease from brambles, but on the other hand, the brambles obviously like it there so maybe, excepting the potential disease issue, it's a natural place for berries..?
