Compact Raspberry Bush is Perfect for Containers

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 Bushel and Berry™ Raspberry Shortcakesolves 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.





Bushel and Berry™ Raspberry Shortcake™ Bush Pollination

Bushel and Berry™ Raspberry Shortcake™ Bush are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Bushel and Berry™ Raspberry Shortcake™ Bush will drastically increase the size of your crop.

Delicious
i purchased two bushes and they arrived very healthy and quite a good size. I have one of these already, and it is a vigorous grower in a pot. It's a great producer and the berries are delicious.

This is the first winter on them. I hope they perk up, come spring time and start growing. They were not in very good shape when they got here.

I ordered two of these beautiful, compact, little bushes. There's no berries yet, but they are great looking plants all the same. What an awesome addition to any patio or garden.

Making the Comeback
I ordered two initially, then one more later. All three were packaged horribly (unusually so) with dead rotting leaves and broken branches. They looked like they were not going to make it, so bad in fact, not a good leaf on them. I transplanted them and kept them watered well, within a couple months the worst looking one was the biggest, green bushy strong & healthy. That's why I bought a third. The old branches are the only ones baring fruit for now, but I'm not worried. Love them

I love these
I have purchased 2 of this brand of raspberry. (local shops but same brand) in Western Washington. The first year produced about a full quart freezer bag of big delicious raspberries per plant. The canes die off over the winter and you cut them down. Whammo... frost is over and they popped up in a bush again. About 2 feet high and round. Lots of berries. They just sit on a pot on the balcony and grow. They seem to fill the pot you put them in. Just be patient over winter.

As perfect as anyone can expect
Plant arrived in good condition, well packed but it was in shipping for 4 days which does strain the plant. After I put it in the final container it really looked healthy and started growing new leaves.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Bushel and Berry™ Raspberry Shortcake™ Bush



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Bushel and Berry™ Raspberry Shortcake™ Bush.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant


Next, separate the roots of your Bushel and Berry™ Raspberry Shortcake™ Bush gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole


As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Bushel and Berry™ Raspberry Shortcake™ Bush again after the transplant is complete.

I'm living in a retirement center in Yukon OK (near Oklahoma City), and I have a "cottage" with a nice back yard that I keep fiddling with. I planted three Cumberland black raspberries I purchased from "Fast-Growing Trees" in early spring of 2016. They're doing quite well, and even have produced some raspberries already. So I'm going to try this bush berry....now I'll have to purchase a large container to put it in. Wheeeee!!!

I love the possibility of having berries growing on the deck...I picked wild dewberries all summer when I was a kid and I would love for my son to have a similar experience...although not wild, I like the idea of him going to the backyard and "stealing" berries for a snack.

Do I have to bring my pot in could I just cover it ?
Bev C on Sep 26, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I live in zone 6a and have mine in a pot. I do not cover it in the winter or bring it in and it is growing well. In fact looks like a banner harvest this year. I have separated it into 4 plants over two years and all doing well. When I first got it in the mail, I thought it was dead but planted it anyway. It is now 4 lovely plants. I would have more fruit this year but was energetic last fall and pruned two of them. What was I thinking??? Berries grow on last years vines! At least it was only two ??
do I have to have two to polinate ?
Bob D on Apr 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You do not need another bush to pollinate, however, berries do work best in three's and will be more prolific.
Is this plant Gogi plant winter hardy in Ontario Canada? We just bought this plant October 2014.

I live in zone 4, if I put the raspberry shortcake in a pot, how do I take care of this plant in winter when I bring it inside?
A shopper on Jun 2, 2014
BEST ANSWER: First of all let me say we live in Zone 6 and planted our two Brazelberry Raspberry Shortcakes in the ground. We fertilized them when we planted them. Our bushes haven't produced any fruit yet. We had a colder than normal winter here and a very late spring. Now we have been having a lot of rain. The bushes are growing well now, but still not over 1-2 ft tall. I can suggest for you to keep your bushes indoors late in the fall and winter and feed monthly. They also should have indirect lighting. Good Luck!
Can this plant be left outside for the winter in Zone 6?
Angie R on May 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes this plant is recommended for zones 5-9 so it can withstand the winters in your area.
Mine is producing fruit, but the canes are growing sideways and down (drooping to the ground). Does not seem right for this bush. Any ideas? I have tried a tomato cage, but they really do not like it at all.
Scott C on May 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I haven't had that problem but we have separated it into 4 bushes over the two years. The harvest on the original bush looks to be wonderful this year.

Something is eating my leaves. They look like lace and the plant is dying. What could be doing this?
Dana P on Aug 9, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Sounds like you have Japanese beetles!!! These bugs love raspberry bushes, basil plants and a lot of other plants. Check out the internet. We had these really bad a few summers ago and had to put out traps to lure them. If you find just a few on your plants, you can pick them off and put them into a container with dish soap and water to kill them. These beetles are kind of pretty and are large enough to see and handle. Good luck.
Can this grow in the shade?
Judy T on Jun 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: They do best in partial sun. ("They" because you need at least two for good pollination and berry production.) Mine have been in containers for a few years and are thriving on my deck with morning sun only. It is important to cut back the canes in late fall. We so enjoy picking fresh berries in the morning throughout our Virginia summers!
Can blueberry and raspberry plants be cross pollinated, or do you need to buy two of each?
Peggy T on Jul 11, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi Peggy
The rule of thumb is that you buy at least 3 or more of each type of fruit to ensure proper pollination.
I planted mine in containers and they look like they are dying from the soil level up. What kind of soil is best? They are in a well draining mixture...pine bark, perlite, peat moss.
Jennifer P on Aug 20, 2014
BEST ANSWER: You might try to take out the pine bark and some of the peat moss. You need to have more "dirt" in the pot. Add compost to some of the peat moss. The mixture you are using may be too dry and not holding water. Also you need to feed these bushes monthly. Check with a local greenhouse for the correct one to feed raspberries. Also the pot size should be big enough so the roots have room to grow. As these brazelberries are in a pot, make sure to water enough but not over-water them. Hope this helps!
I have raspberry shortcake plants in containers. I live in zone 5. If I leave out do I cover and with what? Would it be better to store in garage for the winter?
