I want to lift this year’s raspberry canes to give to friends. I would normally do this in January, having cut the plants from about 1.5 metres to 0.5m. What’s the ideal month to lift them? The old canes have finished fruiting now, but I noticed some new fruit on one or two new green shoots with more small green berries already forming. I thought they’d have to be one or other of either early or late fruiting. I have nettles and blackberry brambles well rooted. I want to dig and spray. Which should I do first?

It is not uncommon in a damp summer to get late fruit on raspberries as the canes flourish.

Like offset spawn in November.

Dig out brambles and spray nettles on a dry day with Roundup.
