    I have read of and therefore tried to put root membrane in place around the raspberry bed to contain the roots. Too early to say if it will work or not. I'm anticipating that they will escape through the one and only join but time will tell!!!

    You can always offer those you dig up to someone else

    Yes, definitely a job for later in the year. Its worth leaving them in now so that you get a crop - I wouldn't be without raspberry jam

    They took over half my garden a couple of years ago. I've had to be ruthless and get rid of lots of raspberry canes. Luckily, they're quite shallow rooted so its not too difficult to dig them out.

    started a topic Raspberry roots!!

    Raspberry roots!!

    Been on my plot for two years now. One problem I have is the raspberry roots spreading and coming up in vegetable beds 2-3 yards away. Is it possible to kill just these straying roots? Or do I need to dig up the whole raspberry area?
