The Q&A Archives: raspberry and blackberry

Question: Is it possible to grow raspberry/blackberry in the container?

Answer: Raspberries and blackberries (also called brambles) are not well suited to container growing because they spread rapidly through their root systems. I'm afraid that if you kept them in a container they would quickly outgrow their space and would die off at a young age. You might try planting in a half-whiskey barrel and they would probably be happy for a few years, but after that their health would suffer.

How about growing strawberries in containers instead??
