Growing Raspberries & Blackberries

  • Not registered for sale in: HI, PR
  • Pre-Order Today!
  • Available to ship as soon as: January 8, 2016
  • (However, as we ship on a first come, first serve basis, your order may not ship until days or weeks later. You will receive an email when your order ships.)


When placing your bare root orders, please be aware that AS SOON as the trees/plants are available to ship (Dec. for trees, Jan. for plants), we will begin shipping IMMEDIATELY - no matter where you are located !!!

There are several factors why we must ship immediately:

  • We can only ship bare root items when they are dormant. With us being located in CA, trees/plants can come out of dormancy well before the rest of the nation is ready to plant.
  • We receive our bare root items in successive deliveries. We need to move them out quickly, as our space is limited.
  • It is very challenging, if not impossible, to keep track of who gets what when dealing with ten's of thousands of trees/plants and 200 varieties over 3 months, hence we must adhere to our policy.


When your order arrives, you should remove it from the outside elements before nightfall. If you will not be present at the destination when the order will be delivered, you should either ship the order to another location or make sure someone will be there to take care of your order.

While your order is hardy enough to withstand freezing temperatures in its box, you definitely should not leave it outside in sub-zero temperatures for days on end.

AS IMPORTANTLY, you then need to open the box, remove the trees/plants from their plastic bag, store them in a basement, cellar or garage, covering their roots with sand, dirt, sawdust or wood chips (do not use cedar that is toxic to the trees) and keep them moist until you are able to plant them in the ground in Spring.

Customer Reviews

We had big, luscious berries this past season

Boysenberries produced abundantly without any pests or problems. They seem to be a no fuss no muss berry. Delicious flavor - very sweet and juicy.

Wonderful early season treat

I planted 4 of these in early 2010 in Escondido, CA. Only 2 survived, but both produced well in their second year. I had forgotten that the fruit matures in June, so it was a pleasant surprise! <br /><br />Like most cane berries, the time period between slightly tart and overripe is only 3-4 days, so you'll want to keep a close eye out. I used bird tape for about 3 weeks and it was fairly effective.
