    Yep EB! That was exactly my thoughts! Hence I'd like an idea of just how much of a harvest we are gonna get!

    I'd check Hessayon but a friend has it as well as my other fruit book, no wonder I can't find them. Memory def going. Must need a glass of wine. I've heard that can help prevent Alzheimers (good enough excuse for me).

    If at first you don't succeed, open a bottle of wine.

    My gosh Mrs D, 84 canes you could open a pick your own. I've only got 5 but if they provide us with a couple of desserts I will be happy.

    Mrs D. you won't get a huge harvest from the fruit next year because you have moved it. The year after though you will have tons of raspberries and with the strawberries it all depends how old the plants are.

    Thanks LJ, I wont order too many jam jars yet then!

    We have given them a good feed LJ, plus minimized the time they were out of the ground, so I'm hoping it wont be too much of a shock to their systems, but only time will tell I suppose!

    If not too much fruit next year thats ok, I'll just carry on looking forwards to the bumper crop the year after!

    Some of the strawbs are new plants, from runners this year, some are ones that have fruited this year, about 1/2 of each, so even if the ones that fruited this year are 3 years old and need to be replaced we should still get a harvest from the other half, hopefully!

    We have got some strawberry seeds to plant up next year, so I'm hoping that any that dont fruit next year can be easily replaced with seedlings!

    Thanks for the reply anyhows LJ!

    With having so many raspberry canes you should get a fair bit of fruit next year but the following years I don't know what you will do with it all !!!

    Lol LJ! If there's too much I'll just drop some off with your OH at work and let you deal with the glut!
