Transplanting raspberries?

ellen_portland(z8 OR)July 5, 2010

We have a large raspberry patch. I wanted to give some shoots to a neighbor as it is spreading farther into my garden area than I would like.

Is there anything I need to do, or can I just dig it up at the base?

Probably wilt dug now, but you can try it anyway. With hot weather on the horizon timing is just about the least suitable. If they don't make it try again in fall or winter.

I planted some raspberries in an area I was advised to get them out of, so I did, in the middle of last summer. The canes died back a bit, but are doing well and putting on good growth this summer.

Its better in this climate to transplant in the winter, but any time will do if you water.
