Why are supermarket raspberries so expensive? Not because they're hard to grow — in fact, they're remarkably easy — but because they have such a short shelf life. That's why the best raspberries are the ones you grow in your own backyard and pick at the peak of ripeness. Our cedar Raspberry Bed is 8' L x 2' W x 7 1/4" H and holds five plants. It includes an integrated support system with heavy-gauge plastic monofilament line and special tensioners to keep rambling raspberry plants contained and upright.

Easy project with (hopefully) some fruitful returns!
from Montrose, CO
Comments about : Raspberry Bed:
Came quick. Easy for one person to carry and assemble--easiest if you have a cordless power screwdriver. One of my corner pieces was bent but easily repaired with some pliers. Also, I broke the first eye screw by turning it too tightly into the corner trellis post. This was mildly annoying but I replaced it with a stronger stainless steel one (#208). I haven't planted anything yet so can't say how durable it will be over time but seems like those things most likely to eventually fail (e.g., eye screws, boards rotting, etc.) can be easily replaced. Otherwise it looks good--neat and tidy--and should be easy to walk around collecting the bounty!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Just built, and very surprised
By Rick, the elevated gardener
from Hyrum, UT
I have purchased before, and I was impressed but found other items difficult to assemble. I was most pleased when half of it was already assembled. The hour to assemble I had budgeted turned out to be 15minutes. It was packaged right and EASY to assemble. It will be perfect when my bare root plants come in this week. It will be a focal point in my garden. In fact, I've already had neighbors stop and inquire where I purchased it. (My garden is visible from the front yard.). Yes, I would recommend to friend or foe.
This 70-something grandma assembled it in the garden for the raspberries without difficulty. Attached the canes to the wires and it looks professional. Does the job but it was a bit pricey.

Nice but over-priced
These are nice looking, practical beds for raspberries or other plants that need support. I doubled the size by using my own 4ft boards for the sides. Overall, I think the product is way over-priced considering the materials it contains. Anyone not in a hurry could make it for one fifth the price. I would only recommend to well-off friends with little time on their hands.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Neat and tidy rasp- and blackberries!
from South Jordan, Utah
Love my new raspberry bed! Ditto to everything the other reviewers said. But here's a tip which will save you time and frustration: before putting the monofilament into the tensioners, make the cut ends as smooth and round as possible with needlenose pliers. (It really is impossible to pull the line back out and the ends get smashed during cutting, making them difficult to get through the round holes.)When the ends are smooth, they go into the tensioner holes easily.
from Los Alamitos, CA
I bought this to grow raspberries and blackberries without them taking over the entire yard. My daughter and I easily put it together and look forward to our berry harvest.
Nice, neat and tidy
from Carthage, IL
These raspberry beds assembled and set up easily. I am hopeful that these will make it easy to keep the beds nicely weeded and to keep surrounding grasses from constantly creeping into my raspberry patch!
