I'm a raspberry noob,, I planted 3 different varieties 3 or 4 weeks ago and I see nothing happening with them,,, is this normal?  How long till I see signs of life?

I'm not sure, if you planted dormant root stock don't give up in up to a year.  I planted some two years ago and thought they were dead and was going to replace them. Last Spring they shot up from the root runners and did very well. In fact I dug those up and moved them to another location. Thought I got them all, but had 3 more come up for root I had missed and had to transplant them this spring.

 Normally thy will come up much sooner but I can't tell you how long.

Once they start growing it's hard to keep them contained. They tend to spread.

I try to help them along. I have them in 30 foot rows and I plan to extend that to 60 ft rows. Then will see if Jo has enough berries to please her? I will expand till she says enough.

Raspberries are one of my favourites. My mother used to make jelly from them and it got consumed pretty quick.

Jo was buying them to make sauces for deserts and to make vinegrette dressings. At 3.00 PLUS for a pond box it could get expensive in a hurry. So since we had plenty of room in this place, it only made sense to grow our own.

Last Summer we mixed black rasberries and black berries and made some fantastic home made ice cream.
