Q.Multiplying Existing Raspberries

Anonymous added on April 2, 2011 | Answered

I have a row of everbearing raspberries that are several years old.
Each of the plants has 3-7 stocks/stems that have been cut/pruned earlier this spring to about 4 inches above the soil. I want to create a second, and possibly third, row of raspberries. How should I go about this?

This answer I gave for transplanting raspberries may be of help......... Rather than take cuttings I use the runners that pop up. From each cane I usually get 2-5 “runners” (growth from the original root pops up as new cane). I dig these up, cutting the root back from the original cane, soak in warm water for an hour & then plant in a pot until established, then give away or plant a new area of my garden. Works for me.
