The Q&A Archives: Raspberry Starts

Question: I have a lot of new raspberry starts coming up from around those I planted last year. What's the best way to transplant them? Should I soak them in water or use a root start powder I have -- or just get them straight into the soil in the new row? ---Bev.

Answer: The new shoots share the roots with your older plants so you'll need to slice straight down through the roots between the parent plant and the new shoots. As long as the new shoots have roots attached you only need to plant them directly into the soil and they will root in a short time.
