Transplanting established grapevines and berries
I work at a summer camp, that has an abandoned garden, and a newly established farm. The abandoned garden has grapevines, currants, and raspberries. I'd like to transplant 3 grapevines (rootstock and all), 1 currant bush, and 3 raspberry canes into the farm. I am wondering what the best time of year to do this is? Should the plants be pruned back before transplanting? Months before transplanting? After transplanting? Do they need to be transported in containers, or can we wrap their roots up (they are only traveling a short distance).

we generally do not recommend transplanting raspberries because of the danger of moving plants that are infected with plant viruses. We recommend planting new virus free stock purchased form a certified nursery.
Thank you so much, this info is very helpful!
