Raspberries from cuttings?
« on: August 12, 2017, 04:14:53 PM »
I bought some autumn fruiting raspberries last winter, they did very poorly as I planted them in a bad position.  This year I am going to move them somewhere better. 

I am about to prune them and was wondering, is it possible to strike cuttings from them to increase the numbers?  If so, what is the most reliable way to do this?

Given how well bramble berries root when they touch the soil it should be pretty easy, Muk. I've just toady pulled up some Sylvans, and they were just strating to root, so should be a a good time.

When you dig them you should also be able to divide them. I've done that with newly bought raspberries and been able to create at least two plants from the one I purchased. The best I did was four from one. Raspberry cuttings do well but I've only ever taken cuttings in summer.
