Raspberry Shortcake® Raspberry provides an easy way for everyone to grow raspberries, even in a small space. This is a mounding, dwarf variety that doesn’t require staking or training in rows. The full-sized berries appear in midsummer and have a delicious sweet vanilla flavor. Raspberry Shortcake® is thornless so no more pokes when you harvest your berries. It flowers in fragrant, white clusters. 

This compact variety only reaches 3 feet high and wide, and has a rounded form. It is self-pollinating and fruits on new growth. This plant is deciduous and will go dormant in the winter. Grow this beauty in a patio container for easy access to fresh berries or as a compact short hedge with sweet appeal.

Raspberry Shortcake® Raspberry Care

Raspberry Shortcake® grows best in full sun; it tolerates light shade, but will not fruit as abundantly without at least 6 hours of direct sun. It prefers a planting site with slightly acidic soil, rich in organic matter. The soil should be evenly moist, but not water-logged, which can cause root rot. Water regularly during the summer, potentially daily if growing in containers. Fertilize yearly in the spring with a well-balanced, slow-release formula. 

This raspberry is a floricane variety and fruits during the second year. New shoots will emerge each spring called the primocanes and will only bear foliage that season. The next year, these will become the fruit-producing floricanes. In late fall, remove the floricanes that have finished fruiting. You can also thin out crowded primocanes and any dead growth. 

Raspberry Shortcake® Raspberry Spacing

Space raspberry plants at least 3 feet apart. You can train them up a trellis for a more vertical appearance. If growing in a container, use a pot at least 24 inches to accommodate its spreading nature.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
