    I have a few Glen Moy which is a summer raspberry but they also produce a small crop in September on the new canes grown in the current year.

    If you do mean 2 raspberry canes then pull them out, throw them and buy either Summer or Autumn ones as required and of which you know the variety.

    2 canes is just not worth the effort in finding out as you can buy a bunch of 5/10 or however number you want to start with for around £1 a cane. Just doesn't seem worth the bother for 2 unknown canes.

    I'm generally fully on the side of not chucking any possibly useful plant out, but in this case I agree with Kirk - I'd definitely get rid of these unknowns, especially as you are planning to plant other raspberries near by.

    The risk is that the plants left in will be a source of pests and diseases for your new ones and that more than off sets any possible reward to keeping them in my mind
