    Not cuttings exactly, but you can dig out some of the new canes that form around the base of the plants (with roots attached) and transplant them.

    Raspberries are real thugs and would spread like weeds given the chance. They throw up shoots from the roots which develop into canes. Once these are strong enough, they can be severed from the main plant and planted up. Cut the new canes back to about 9" and they will reward you with more shoots.

    I even grew some Tullameen rasps from seed, and they fruited in the second year!
