Re: [nafex] raspberry transplanting and autumn bliss roots

Thanks Don and Lon, My conclusion then is to wait till frost is out next 
spring, take a sharp flat spade and go down the outside of the 4'wide area I 
intend to keep in raspberries. Then lift up the soil outside this area and 
salvage any roots I can find.

Anyone wanting Autumn Bliss roots contact me next March, be glad to supply, 
perhaps trade for other raspberry roots or?  Mn. Del Z2/3
