Moving raspberries

I have some summer raspberries that have been in the ground a year or so....I want to move them to another part of the plot.

a). Its a shaded part (pretty much most of the day) - will they work there?
b). Is it safe to move them?
c). What time of year do I move them?

Thanks everyone.

Re: Straight Beans

Thanks.


Fishpond - I know it's not important for me to grow straight beans as I dont show them, but I wanted to kill the curiosity. I'll give the "boil you to death" method a go haha!

I never cut them to cook.

Straight Beans

How on earth do you grow STRAIGHT beans?? I grew frenchies last year and they were tasty, but curly.

Re: Couch Grass Hell

Lovely - off to ASDA for a riddle/sieve later this week then.

Think I will dig out what I need to and weed kill the rest and cover. Hopefully that will sort it mostly.

Thanks everyone.
