Raspberry plants with long roots

A couple of weeks ago, I received a few raspberry plants in the mail. The instructions said to plant them about 4" deep. However, some of the roots were at least a foot long. I just dug the holes extra wide. Should I have trimmed some of the roots? I can't change anything now, but in the future I could always trim the roots a bit if that's the best approach. Thanks for any info.

You did the right thing.just spread the roots out to the sides in a fan pattern.
