The procedure for propagating black and purple raspberries differs from that of how to propagate red raspberries due to the different growing habits of the plants.
The most favourable time to propagate, or transplant, black and purple raspberries is the early to mid summer, in loose, moist soil.
Left to themselves, black and purple raspberry plants will propagate themselves, but they do not produce plants as good as can be grown with the help of the gardeners intervention!
In early to mid summer, dig a hole about 4 - 6 inches deep, in close proximity to the mature raspberry plants.
Take the tip of the branch of a young raspberry cane, and insert the tip into the bottom of the hole and fix in place with a small piece of wire, bent as shown in the diagram (above).
Backfill the hole around the branch with loose soil, tamp down the soil, and water well (see above diagram).
When the tip has rooted, (you will see new growth coming up if the tip has rooted), using a sharp pruning shears, sever the new plant from the original plant (with about 12" of stem and plant cut from the original plant).
Scroll down this page for examples of good pruning /cutting shears ... an important tool that all gardeners should invest in!
The new raspberry plants should be well rooted by late fall and ready for transplanting to its desired location in the garden/raspberry patch early the following spring. (Or, you can choose to keep the new plant in its new location.)
In the spring, as the new growth starts growing, using a sharp pruning shears, cut off the "old" stem at ground level.
Following these simple steps will enable you to increase the size of your black and purple raspberry patch to your heart's content!
When cutting or pruning raspberry plants, or any garden plants, it is important to use sharp cutting tools.
