Zone 83646 | escharff added on April 30, 2021 | Answered

I want to grow Thornless Boysenberries “Rubus Boysen” in a container and I understand this is possible. How big should the container be? Does it matter what material is used to construct the container? What kind of trellis do I use and how tall should it be?

You will want the container to be, quite, large. This will need to be about 1 or 2 feet deep and 3 to 4 feet wide, as the roots would expand to to that in nature.

As a general rule, you will want to avoid any treated wood or railroad ties, or anything that will leech materials into the soil. Other than this, it is up to you for what is to be used.
