    When buying berry bushes in stores, how do you know how old they are?

    I have recently purchased a Raspberry plant in store. The root with a 1-2 foot branch coming off of it. How do I know how old they are? Is there a typical age of plant that is sold?

    I'd guess that most small berry bushes(1g) are 2 years old. Some smaller bare root canes of blackberry and raspberry could be younger, but 2 yrs is best because they are forming canes from established crowns.  Most common berries will begin to produce fruit once rooted in a larger container or garden bed within 1-2 years.

      Thank you. This was what I was trying to figure out.
