So I tried to grow them in pots a year ago, but unfortunately I got some bad soil with aphids from somewhere and all my plants died.
So I decided to try again.
Sieberz . I keep them in hanging pots on the balcony window.
They seem to be doing ok, but the ones I bought seem to be growing very slowly. The sturdy type from my garden started expanding already, the others just sprouted a few more small leaves.
I even invested in some special fertilizer for them from Leroy Merlin (it was about 5 euros/500g).
So far, they don't seem to want to bloom, but I'm hopeful :)
I also bought from Sieberz a raspberry plant (after buying a blackberry and a raspberry plant from Praktiker that refused to sprout leaves).
It's doing great, even if I didn't move it from its pot (it looked like the soil was a special blend and it was deep enough).
It's supposed to be able to bear fruit in a year - so I will probably have to move it in another bigger pot later in the year.
The main problem with it is that it needs a lot of sun, so I have to be careful where I place it, since only a corner of my balcony gets sun for a longer period.
I added the packages so you can see the species (since the plants are dismal at this stage :p). The one on the left is a Jostaberry (a cross between black currant/coacaz and gooseberry/agris) and the one on the right is Citria (white blackberry).
I had the same problem with these as I did with the trees - they have very deep roots so I needed deep cheap pots - so I used plastic garbage cans.
Let's hope they can manage without special soil!
Oh, almost forgot, I also have a Goji plant - my uncle has a passion for the fruits and he planted a big bush in my grandmother's garden, so I took a cutting and planted it in a pot. It was attached by afids and almost died, but I managed to revive it and it's going strong.
I've had it for almost three months so far, but since it was traumatised earlier this year I don't expect it to bear fruit this year.
I also took a cutting from a fig bush we have and I'm trying to see if it will root, because Pinterest says that you can grow figs in a pot also.
But it's only been a month so I'll give it more time before I post pictures (currently it's in a plastic bottle with some water and some soil).
Let's get to actual flowers!
