A favorite for home gardeners, raspberry plants are easy to grow, and the berries are packed with nutrition. Like most fruit plants, raspberries grow best when planted in a sunny location and in loamy, well-drained soil. To ensure they receive good air circulation, provide them with plenty of space and a trellis. Growing 4-5 ft. tall, raspberry bushes can be planted in the spring and the fall. Black, red or golden raspberry bushes are available for sale online. When selecting raspberries to buy for the home garden, select varieties that will grow in your hardiness zone. Next consider their harvest times. Some raspberry bushes are double cropping and produce two crops a year, while others produce one crop.
