Even patio gardeners can now include raspberries in their bounty. ‘Raspberry Shortcake’ stays a tidy 2- to 3-foot-tall mound—perfect for pots. Yet the berries are full-size, and very sweet. Find it at nurseries.
Grow it: Plant in full sun in well-draining soil; moderate water. Fertilize in early spring with a balanced liquid fertilizer.
