Post I can't find berries to purchase - help!
I am having trouble finding raspberry plants to buy in the Portland area. Does anyone have suggestions? Specifically I'm looking for "Fall Red".

THANKS!!

There's a nursery in Wilsonville accross the street from Mentor Graphics that I last week bought 2 bunches of Tulameen Raspberries. They had some others but I don't recall what they were. The bunches were kept in trays of wet peat moss so the roots have been growing as well as canes. I planted them right away in a new raised bed and this past week's cool weather has been just the right thing. They were $6.70 for a bunch containing 3 plants.

AJ; I didn't see "Fall Red" -- and you may have already scanned these sources - but I ordered my last batch of raspberries from Raintree Nursery in Washington (state) – lots of them! And I've always had good results with One Green World too; and you can more easily drive to their nursery, from the Portland metro area.

I've two fall bearing red raspberries that have done well, but it's too wet and far away to look at their tags for you right now! My Dad's always complained about Fall Raspberries not having the "full flavor" of the Spring-only bearers... guess I agree, nothings as "Razzberry" as a Willamette! …But come fall, those Everbearer’s taste mighty good (if I / you can beat the birds to them)!
