    I found this growing near my garden, about 2 feet away from my failed store bought raspberry cane. Is it a raspberry??

    I think it is a wild blackberry, only because the leaf is not as white fuzzy underneath as my raspberries are, and the stem not the same. I'd just keep it for awhile if you're not sure. Looks like you potted it up? After the first season, my raspberries that were happy with their spot sent shoots up all over the place and became quite easy to tell apart from wild blackberries and from the thornless blackberries.

    I turn my back a minute and it turns into a jungle out there:rolleyes:

    I cannot grow cultivated berries, but I sure get lots of wild ones and volunteers Looks like you might have a blackberry, but other plants are similar. Concerned there is a divide in the stem so low which is not characteristic of well cultivated types, but more like a wild vine. WOrth holding onto and see. Do you have a good place to keept he potted plant for the winter, out of wind and such. My potted plants do better if I can bury the pot or store on the north side of the house.

    No telling but Its there now. Anyway I have two differrent kinds of raspberries (from lowes. They died back last fall but came back and produced again this year. One is tasty the other one is not very good. Ill probabaly put that one in the empty lot with the reject plants We have a few wild blackberries growing around the house.There was alot to pick this year with all the rain we had. I wish they were the thornless variety though. haha

    Oh, putting rejects in a place like "the empty lot"! Hmmm, whose lot needs thornless blackberries, rampant lemon balm, raspberries, sun chokes, forsythia....hehehee
