You don’t need a huge garden to grow fruit; you can grow berries in pots very easily. Many of what are called ‘soft fruit’; the gooseberries, blueberries, raspberries and strawberries can all be grown in large planters with great results.
What’s great about growing these plants is that you’ll get a small crop in the first year and after that your investment will grow and grow. You just need to take a look at the cost of fresh soft fruit in the shops to realise that growing your own is a no brainer. When a punnet of raspberries, just 200g in weight, costs £2-3 and you can harvest that every few days for several weeks from just a few canes or plants, you start to understand the maths.
And it’s the same with blueberries and the other soft fruit, some of which you rarely see for sale and yet all of these are delicious ingredients for summer puddings, jams and preserves and much more.
