Some raspberry canes have died back this year Can I dig up existing healthy canes & replant in spaces where canes have died -having replaced soil. Do I need to cut down new growth on replanted canes & can I transplant now.

Die back can occur due to disease or pest attack, or wet ground. The latter must be solved before re-planting and you can take some canes off the sides of existing plants, with enough root to survive.

Re-plant in November.
