New Raspberry canes

hi everyone, so we have moved into a new house and currently have around 6 raspberry canes fruiting. There are also 10 ‘new’ canes growing around and it’s all looking a little too wild. Am I right in thinking once the fruiting has ended I cut the spent canes to the ground and that next year the new canes will fruit? The problem I’m having is that they are scattered around randomly and I’d like to dig up the new canes and plant them in a neater row somewhere. Is this recommended and if so do I need to wait to move the new ones?

    Yes, when the ones that are fruiting now have done, the stems will be brown and you cut them to the ground. The new ones will fruit next year. If you want to move them, do it in Late September, and water in well.

    Even though they are spread out they could be the same plant as raspberries tend to travel underground, but it should have it's own roots so should be moveable. Just watch for thick roots running not to far below the surface between plants.🙂
