Q.Raspberry Runners

Anonymous added on January 18, 2011 | Answered

I would like to plant a 30 foot row of everbearing raspberries on the outside of my existing garden fence (8 feet high galvanized). I don’t have any more room inside my garden. I don’t want runners to grow under the fence and into the pathway before my sectioned-off vegetable beds or into the grass on the other side. Is there a way I can baracade the soil around the perimeter of this raspberry bed, say 10 in. or so, to contain the runners?

I would consider planting your raspberries in bottomless 5 gallon buckets or some other kind of tub. Removing the bottom of the bucket allows the roots to grow down with plenty of room to grow but keeps them from growing outwards and invading other spaces.
