Raspberry Plants - Knowledgebase Question

I recently purchased a raspberry plant and planted it in a pot. I wasn't real sure if I could plant it in a pot or not? Should I replant into the ground??

Your raspberry can grow in a pot for a year - maybe two - but it really should be planted in the ground. Raspberries need lots of sunshine and lots of room to grow. After it flowers and develops fruit the cane is cut down but new canes will emerge for the following year's fruit production. The root system will be quite extensive as the plant matures so it will need lots of ground space. I'd put it in the ground so it will have room to become really productive. Best wishes with your raspberries.
