[nafex] raspberry transplanting

can't remember if I posted this already......

This spring I offered autumn bliss shoots to fellow nafexers.
They were coming up quite beautifully in the path and thought I'd save some 
from the rototiller. I sent 20 or so of 6 to 12" new green plants with about 
6" of year old root to 2 people. I clipped off all the leaves except 
terminal ones. They arrived in good condition and recieved reasonable to 
exceptional care by the transplanters (watering, shade protection etc.)   
All died.  I new it was a gamble, trying to transplant such tender growth, 
but it is such a waste to just plow them under if they can be transplanted.
I realized later that perhaps it would make more sense to snip them off 
above the first leaf and let them propagate from the petiole base.
Has anyone sucessfully transplanted new growth?
I have a patch of 6 boyne in their second year, I'm looking for suggestions 
as how best to divide and propagate these into a proper row. I'm willing to 
dig up and divide the whole patch if that is the best method. In the fall or 
spring?  Thanks, Mn. Del
