Pot berry plants in a well draining pottery mix that includes a mix of particle sizes, such as larger composted bark, sand, and peat. Blueberries do best in lighter soils where their fibrous roots can penetrate easily

Raspberries are more adaptable to soil types as long as they are well drained.  Make sure the planter you use is large enough to accommodate the root system and soil and has a drain hole in the bottom to allow excess water to move away from the roots.

Water plants daily during summers hot months and feed them using a organic fertilizer in May, June and July.  Protect the plants from potential damaged from freeze-thaw cycles.  Move the pots into the garage or bury them in the soil and cover with mulch till next Spring

Try to find colorful glazed planters since many of these can handle the changing climates.  If you live in a cold weather state and must leave the potted plants outside, use a poly-resin or concrete planter. The freezing temps won't crack the pots and they will look great from year to year.

Look for flavorful plants.  Medium size flavorful berries are the goal here. Use the fragrance, color and beauty to add to your garden or patio areas. Potted berries are easy to grow, fun to eat and great to look at.  Enjoy!
