raspberry starts...can it be done?
So, having a grotesquely large amount of raspberries in my yards, I brought some to the last spring and fall swaps. But, it seems they have died.
I am pretty sure that the starts I collected and potted were complete: roots, healthy tops and buds at the crowns. Should I dig deeper?
I'm thinking it might be a waste to dig some up now for the swap but maybe I can start some earlier and about a month before the fall swap?
Advice is appreciated!
