Summer fruiting raspberry

    3 responses

Cindy starts with ...
I also came across this plant in the nursery today but there was nothing on it to tell me how to grow it and it's eventual height.

I always thought that Raspberry like a trellis or support to climb on but this tree had a long stem with leaves on the top

Could it be planted in a pot successfully?

Thanks again
Cindy

Raspberries are low growing plants that are either erect or sprawling, they grow to about 1.5 - 2m tall, they are not tolerant of wind and will require a support to keep them upright and under control. You could grow raspberries successfully in a large pot, with a support system in it.

I've just recently bought a Summer fruiting raspberry too, I'm curious about what soil mix would be best for encouraging healthy growth and fruiting in the Melbourne climate.

some of the leaves on my plant are starting to curl and turn yellow, yet i've only watered it, and am yet to repot it into a larger pot with a trellis. can anyone tell me why this is? is it due to wind or pests?

thanks!

It could have dried out, once potting mix dries out it can be difficult to re-wet, water will run freely through the mix without the plant receiving very much of it. Try dunking the pot into a bucket of water until the bubbles stop rising. Repot into a lager pot in good quality mix. They like a slightly acidic, rich soil with lots of humus and good potassium levels. Loamy soils with a PH of 4.5 - 7 are ideal.
