    Hi.
    Does anyone know of a raspberry variety which will grow in a shady garden in Squamish, BC?
    Thanks.

    I think they all will grow there as long as there is some light.

    Thanks Tree Nut.

    The plants would be for my son's garden and as I will be thinning out my raspberries this year I'll just thin out some of the extras for him. They grow and fruit like weeds so have as good a chance as any.

    The main particular thing about raspberries is their need for excellent soil drainage.
