Transplanting Raspberry

We purchased a home where raspberry was left go and has run amuck among the weeds in the woods. Good crop but very hard to harvest. I want to transplant it in a proper row with a short support for the canes. We are having a pretty mild November. Can I do this now or wait until spring? Now I can easily tell which canes are first year and will provide berries next year.

Re: Transplanting Raspberry

Spring is much better for transplanting this bush.   It is now too late in the fall.   With transplanting, you most likely will not get berries in 2014.   To tell which canes bore fruit, look for the calyxes, the bases of flowers and berries, left on the canes.  These are the canes you want to cut back entirely to the ground.

Re: Transplanting Raspberry

November is not a good time to shift them if you are not in a hurry. Best time is betwen april and may. Whenever you shift please make sure  that new place should recieve ample sunlight and the soil PH  (5.5 to 6). To restrict the weed growth , spread 3 inches of mulch around the transplanted canes.
