Growing raspberries - Knowledgebase Question

Woodland Hills, Ca
Question by shirleygreen6

I live in the San Fernando Valley, CA (usually in the 100s for quite a few days in the summer) I would like to grown a raspberry cane in a large pot so I can move it to cooler places in my garden when it gets really hot. Would this be a good idea? If not, where should I plant it in the garden?
Also, when should I start feeding my roses and garden plants? I have only lived in CA two years.

Raspberries, and all brambles for that matter, love the sunshine and the heat so find a sunny spot and plant your raspberries in the ground rather than in a container. Don't worry about moving them around. The general rule of thumb is to wait until new growth begins in the spring, then feed your plants. Enjoy your California garden!
