    Great attachments Nick! I think I'll put OH to work on a nice structure this weekend

    Another question about raspberries. I’m transplanting my autumn rasps from the garden to the lottie. The patch where I am transplanting them to is infested with bindweed. It has taken me 4 weekends to clear all the roots manually and to stop it from coming back, I was wondering if raspberries like being planted like strawberries, through a membrane mulch. Or will that damage the suckers? Thanks everyone for such great advice!

    Does anyone have any advice on this?

        Hi Feather, we've planted our 'fedge' of 85 raspberry canes (mix of summer and autumn fruiting) through a membrane and bark chipping mulch, they're starting to bud up and new shoots are appearing, so I dont think its anything to be worried about, tho I'm sure some of the other more experienced grapes will be along with a reply shortly!

        I asked a similar question last year, and got the replies here

        Hope its of some help!
