Hello. I am moving to California (LA) from New York City and wanted to know if my berries will survive there. I have a chandler Blueberry, a heritage raspberry, everlast strawberries and a navajo blackberry. I want to make sure that they will be ok...can I make this work?

I wouldn't count on the berry plants growing well in a completely different gardening region. In fact, you may want to replace your California varieties with those that thrive in New York. Cornell University has extensive publications on small fruit growing that you might find helpful. Here's the website: http://www.gardening.cornell.e...

Good luck with your move!
