rasp and blackberry

How long until you would expect to see some growth from newly planted rasp and blackberry plants? These were bare root plants and i cut them as suggested by the nursery (approximately 4 inches) after planting two weeks ago? I know it is too early now, just curious when they will start to grow.

They should at least have some little buds on them where the leaves will emerge if they are alive now.

But around here, 3 weeks ago, we had a major warm spell for about 8 days where it was into the 70's, and I rode by a farm that grows black raspberries, and they had obviously bulging buds ready to open then and produce leaves. That was in Northern most MD. But I saw some plants in Lowes(reds) that had buds but not yet leaves.

RE: rasp and blackberry

I would give them at least another 4 weeks before becoming concerned. Bare-root planting is more of a shock than transplanting potted plants.

RE: rasp and blackberry

funny, while watering today, i notced that one of the blackberries was coming up. Also surprised that my strawberries already had a couple of flowers, especially considering the cold snaps lately.
