Plant of the Week


Growing your own fruits and berries just gets stronger all the time.And, so many new varieties available that stay smaller (for containers and smaller gardens), easier to care for, disease resistance, and great producers.One of those series of berries is called ‘Bushel and Berry’.And from that collection there are many, great dwarf or smaller growing berry plants for you!And, they’re all self-fruiting.Today, let’s look at 3 of them:Raspberry Shortcake, Baby Cakes Blackberry, and Perpetua Blueberry.
