Is It Too Late To Plant Raspberries In Zone 8? (Nov 8th)
It's November 8th here in the Pacific Northwest and it's about 28 degrees. I'm wondering if it's too late to plant raspberries? I sure would like to order some from a nursery and they're still delivering but I'm wary because it's been so cold.

Planting now will, likely, be a death sentence for the plant.
Most nurseries will ship just about anywhere at anytime, as the purchaser assumes all responsibility once the plant has left the facility. Some nurseries are a little more considerate.
These will be best planted in early Spring.
