Raspberry bushes should be planted in early spring, although late winter may be a suitable time in warmer climates. Bare-root plants can be placed in the soil four to six weeks before the last frost. Plants that are started indoors should be transported once the danger of frost has past.
Raspberries are widely grown in many temperate regions. Raspberry bushes are typically planted as dormant canes during the late winter and early spring. Commercially gown plants may utilize a specialized cultivation method known as "long cane production." This process requires canes to be grown for a year in a northern climate before being transported to warmer location.
