By special arrangement with the grower, we are pleased to be among the first to introduce BrazelBerries® Raspberry Shortcake™ -- a smaller Raspberry variety with full-size berries. Plants thrive in containers as well as in your garden and require no staking. The carefree, compact shape means no big garden spaces are required. You'll love harvesting the delicious sweet berries right from your patio. Plus there are no thorns to get in your way. This dwarf red Raspberry sends out lots of new canes each spring that produce more midseason fruit every year. Raspberry Shortcake™ grows to a height of 3ft, making it perfect for compact spaces and container gardening. Plants are self-pollinating. 'NR7' PP 22,141
Growing BrazelBerries® Raspberries in containers.
BrazelBerries® are dwarf Raspberry plants that requires no trellising or staking. Upon arrival, replant in a 16-20in container using good-quality potting soil. Place the container outdoors in full sun for the growing season.
Fertilizing. Fertilize your plants in early spring and again in midsummer with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer (such as 18-18-18).
Pruning. Prune out fruit-bearing canes soon after harvest, leaving new green canes to fruit the following season.
Wintering over. In colder climates (Zone 5 and colder), you can overwinter plants in their containers by storing them in a sheltered, unheated area such as a garage or shed once the leaves drop in fall. In warmer climates where freeze-thaw cycles occur, store plants on a protected porch. Where freezing is not a concern, plants can remain outdoors in containers and enjoyed year-round.
