Pick Large Amounts of Delicious Raspberries from a Giant Bush.
Here's the problem with raspberries... they grow on long, skinny canes that need to be supported on trellises and spaced out in order to get a decent crop. They have thorns that make them tough to pick and some varieties make you wait an entire extra year because they can only produce on mature canes.
The Brazelberry Raspberry Shortcake solves all these problems. It grows in a dense bush form that can give you more fruit than a small row of lanky canes. It thrives in a container or the ground, producing fruit on thick new growth. You get a great crop year after year without the work or hassle.
This is an exceptional tasting raspberry. It's full sized with a great texture. They named it "shortcake" because of how sweet it is. Around July, your bushes start to look like small fruit factories... pumping out bright red berries against that lush green backdrop. You can pick for weeks and never have to worry about thorns.
Your bush grows about 3 ft. tall. Ideal for a back deck, where you can walk out each morning and pick fresh raspberries for your breakfast. The larger your container, the larger your plant will grow. But if you really want to get creative... this is a bright looking shrub. Plant them on each side of your front entrance or even as a foundation hedge. In the fall you will start seeing your leaves turning autumn colors. Plant several for a hedge that will give you enough berries to freeze throughout the year as well as share with friends and family.
This is a real problem solver that you will see more of in a few years. We are one of a few nurseries that are able to offer the Raspberry Shortcake. Your bushes will arrive with a well developed root mass and cane structure that is ready to explode with new growth. These large sizes will likely sell out quickly for the year. We suggest you order while they are still available.

Specific Directions for BrazelBerries® Raspberry Shortcake™ Bush
Plant in a 24” or bigger container in potting medium and place in a sunny location outdoors. Apply a slow-release, balanced fertilizer in the spring and midsummer, and water your container every day, especially in summer heat. Goes dormant in winter. Zone 5 and above, overwinter by bringing into a sheltered, unheated area after the leaves drop in fall, and bring back outside in spring. Zones 6 and south, just leave it alone.
Great for the garden, too, but allow space for it to spread moderately. Best in a rich, moist but well-drained soil, and water during dry spells.
Pruning is simple: in mid spring, after leafing has begun, prune out any dead canes that show no new growth.
|Step 1 - Dig Your Hole
Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your BrazelBerries® Raspberry Shortcake™ Bush.
|Step 2 - Place Your Plant
Next, separate the roots of your BrazelBerries® Raspberry Shortcake™ Bush gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.
|Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole
As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.
