Has anyone ever grown Rubus idaeus 'NR7', Dwarf Thornless Raspberry, Raspberry Shortcake™?

I just landed several and am looking for more than marketing info.

BTW, can these be left in the plastic pots they came in during winter if I bury the pots?

They can be buried in their pots for the winter. I've done that with many plants over the years and rarely lose anything.

That's a relief. Didn't think I could beat the frost!

...and I just landed a dozen Brazelberries blueberries as well...a mix of jellybean and peach sorbet. Good to know I can focus on just making them comfortable and plant when more appropriate.

Both raspberries and blueberries are hardy plants so just bury them and don't worry about them until Spring. Thumbs up

I have 5 rose bushes that are in pots that I need to bury also. Their spots aren't fully ready so they will go in the veggie bed for the winter and I'll worry about them in the Spring. Smiling
