I received a Willamette raspberry plant, I'm new to growing food and not sure what to do with it. Can it be planted in a container? I live in southern Ca. It's in a 2 gallon container. My camera battery is charging so I'll just describe it for now. It has a dried out "cane" stick thing, that appears to be cut and then next to it is a single vine that is close to 18" - 2' long. I've read about rows of raspberries or raspberry "patches". I only have the one plant. I have some earthboxes it can go into but it's not exactly a seedling & probably too big already? I have an old empty wine barrel and I have a 3'x6' long veneered cement masonry planter as well (up against a block wall). Which of these would work best for this single raspberry plant and when should I plant it? Any help would be appreciated. Right now it's just sitting in the 2 gallon container on the ground under my plumeria trees. Thanks in advance for the help!
