If you want the biggest bang for your buck, planting raspberries by rootstock is the cheapest way to go.  Rootstock is not the raspberry cane, but the root structure under the canes.  Rootstock will produce more canes at a fraction of the cost of stand alone canes.  As a result this is how commercial farmers establish their raspberry fields.  8oz of root stock will plant a 20 row of raspberries resulting in 20-30 (or more) canes in the 1st year.  1lb will produce a 40’ row and can produce 40-60 (or more) canes.  If you soil is too cold or wet, you can always plant the rootstock in containers.  Container plants should be ready for transplanting into the ground in 3-4 months.  If you plant rootstock in the spring, and manage them properly, you will get raspberries in the fall.  The key to growing raspberries from rootstock is patience and regular watering.   Just like our raspberry canes, our rootstock is Inspected and Certified by the state of Washington to be free of any virus and disease.  A strong Raspberry patch will last for at least 15 years, so it is worth the investment of buying certified plants.  Don’t waste your time/effort/money/garden space planting plants that have come from someone’s backyard as you don’t know if you are bringing any disease or virus that can affect your raspberries and other plants for years to come.

All rootstock comes with a detailed planting/care guide.

Somewhat skeptically, I ordered raspberry root stock from Boston Road Farm after several years of no luck keeping canes alive. Included with my order was a detailed list of planting instructions, which I followed carefully. It's now been about six weeks since I laid the roots into the ground and I couldn't be more pleased with the results: healthy shoots erupting about every foot along the rows so far. I live in a windy, dry area and have had to be religious about watering but with that and, I believe, the soil prep outlined in the included guide, I look forward to fresh raspberries next summer.

Great root stock
We bought a few kinds of raspberry stock. So far we have had tremendous growth and I'm pretty sure every root bloomed. Extremely happy so far. Can't wait until they start to produce.
