Q. Replanting Raspberries

I have cut down my ‘Autumn Bliss’ raspberries to 6 inches off the ground. My question is, can I move them to another location now or must I wait until early spring?

I would wait until early spring. The plant will recover better from being moved if it is transplanted then.

Q. Raspberry Runners

I would like to plant a 30 foot row of everbearing raspberries on the outside of my existing garden fence (8 feet high galvanized). I don’t have any more room inside my garden. I don’t want runners to grow under the fence and into the pathway before my sectioned-off vegetable beds or into the grass on the other side. Is there a way I can baracade the soil around the perimeter of this raspberry bed, say 10 in. or so, to contain the runners?

I would consider planting your raspberries in bottomless 5 gallon buckets or some other kind of tub. Removing the bottom of the bucket allows the roots to grow down with plenty of room to grow but keeps them from growing outwards and invading other spaces.

We have a problem with caterpillars on our raspberry plant and don’t want to use chemical sprays. What natural treatment could we use?

I would recommend neem oil. It is organic and safe for humans, animals and beneficial bugs. Here is more information:

Q. Multiplying Existing Raspberries

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.

Q. Transplanting Raspberry Bushes From Cuttings

Can you take cuttings from a raspberry bush, root them, and transplant them? If so, how is this best done?

Q. Planting Raspberries

I need to know if you can plant raspberry plants next to rhubarb plants? They will be planted at least a foot and a half from each other.

This should be fine, though you may want to add more space between them if possible.
