Any keen gardeners out there? A guy on my allotment has just given me around 15 raspberry canes. He says to plant them now, yet I have also been told to heel them in and delay formal planting until the spring.
Hi yes im a gardener and i would tub them up and put them in the shed or garage away from the frosts, water about once a month, then plant them at the back end of march, this way they will be alot stronger, you can plant them now if you like but you will get a stronger plant with the previous way.
I planted an Autumn variety 'Polka' last year. They were sent out by Thompson & Morgan in early December which is when I planted them and I had a great crop this year, and in fact only cut them down yesterday and still took a few berries off then. So I'd say now for Autumn fruiters as you should get fruit next year if you plant now
