You'll soon understand their excitement when you sample the prolific and sweet fruit of your harvest every summer!

Your Raspberry Shortcake® is an ouch-less cane and incredible dwarf that won't require staking, and it's self-pollinating so you can have one or more with no problem! It's small enough to tuck into vegetable and kitchen gardens, to harvest from your paito or even in a hanging planter on a sunny porch! Include among your other pollinator garden, cottage border or even front yard edible landscaping!

  • Bright Red Tasty Berries
  • Mid-Summer Harvest
  • White Spring Flowers
  • Thornless Compact Nature
  • Self-Fruitful Floricane

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Fruiting bushes like Raspberries need full sun to flower and fruit the best. Provide an organically rich, well-drained moist location and mulch the roots well. Prune Floricane bushes after harvest, removing the canes that fruited this year, to the ground.

  • Full Sun
  • Regular Fertility
  • Moderately Moist Well-Drained Soil
  • 800-900 Chill Hours
  • Prune After Fruiting

Not just attractive, but ornamental and edible sweet harvest, the Bushel and Berry® Raspberry Shortcake® will be a delectable addition to your garden today, but only if you hurry and order yours from NatureHills.com!
