Can anyone tell me if theres a certain time when fruit bushes should be planted? I'm thinking of planting raspberries, blackcurrants and blueberries.

    autumn would be good for blakcurrants and raspberries

    I've no experience of blueberries, sorry. (except eating them)

    Blackcurrents and raspberries often come as 'bare roots' and Autumn would be good for those, as nut says.  Blueberries usually come potted so can be planted at any time that the soil isn't frozen.  Bear in mind that blueberries need acid soil which doesn't dry out - if your soil isn't naturally like that, it's far easier to grow them in large pots of ericaceous compost than it is to try and change the soil in the area where you want to grow them.

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
