I cannot seem to get a straight answer anywhere..
For growing zone 5 (5b to be exact I believe) what would be a good time for Raspberry and Blackberry Bush starts? Anyone have any suggestions?

I can't give you an exact time but now would be ok as long as you water often. I have both and I think I planted last spring.

If you planted earlier in spring you might get bfruit this year..If you plant now you probably won't but the canes will be stronger next year.....If you pant too late in the summer..and winter comes in quick.....you may have losses over the winter...but they are pretty hard usually and can be planted from spring to summer ( and watered if needed !!!)
