Plants for containers with berries
Shop our range of the best plants with berries for growing in pots and containers. Berries can be an essential ornamental feature in container displays, provide a valuable food source to sustain birds and other wildlife in your garden, or (in the case of fruit bushes) provide a bountiful crop for the gardener to enjoy themselves! This section spans berrying shrubs and fruit bushes, which work well in pots on the patio, courtyard gardens, decked areas or skirting hardstanding areas such as driveways. Some of the best berrying shrubs for containers are berberis, cotoneaster and viburnum. In the soft fruit department, blackberries, blackcurrants, blueberries, cranberry, goji, gooseberries, grapes, loganberries, raspberries, redcurrant bushes, strawberries and whitecurrants can all be grown in containers too. Choose a container that can comfortably accommodate the root ball of your chosen plant with some growing room on all sides. Refresh the compost/re-pot containerised specimens every 4-5 years to reinvigorate their growth and keep them healthy.
