Shared Raspberry Plants
I was at my parents place today and they have a significant raspberry patch in their backyard. The way raspberries grow, the top of the plant will reach down to the ground and, where it touched, will root itself to spread. My parents usually just throw out these "babies" since they have no more room but I took them this year to start my own patch :)
Take a spade and dig down around the rooted plant in all directions.
Pull up seedling with as much root mass as you can.
Move to it's new location.
Water well in the first few days so that the roots really establish themselves.
New raspberry patch!
