Fruit for hanging baskets? (3 replies)
I saw a blackberry the other day which said it is perfect for hanging baskets. Has anyone tried it before? It was called black cascade.
Does anyone have any experience of growing fruit in hanging baskets and do you get a good enough crop?

I've just looked this up on Thomson & Morgan main page. It certainly looks interesting. They're not too expensive either so definitely worth a try. You'll have to let us know how they do if you order some.
Strawberries certainly work in baskets but of course you have to remember to water them regularly. Not that we need to at the moment. Seems to be constantly raining here in Norfolk! I would always recommend feeding fruit in baskets with a tomato feed as well to increase the crop.
I can't really think of any others at the moment.
I'm having a go at growing hanging strawberries. Thanks for the tip on giving tomato feed.
I have strawberries in planters, a tomato plant, french beans and a blueberry in a pot. I recently bought a dwarf apricot tree which I am looking forward to fruiting in a year or two.
