I have raspberries growing in my yard that are giving fruit now and I want to relocat them. when would be the best time of year? Also what do I need to do to promote fruit for next year?

After they die back this fall...

Cut all the branches that bore fruit this year right to the ground.
This years new growth you want to cut to a foot tall or less.
Next spring (just when the leaves start or before) dig the root up and transplant where you want.
You need acidic soil so you may want to prepare the new bed this fall and test your soil PH.
Do not expect any fruit next year.
The second summer you should have lots of fruit.
The second fall and every fall after, cut all the whips that bore that year. Raspberries only fruit on last years new growth. After thinning, mulch around them with about 4 inches of pine needles.
You can keep a patch going indefinately this way...

Thanks for the information about transplanting raspberries. I have 2 rows in my garden and would like to reduce it to 1 row at the back of my garden and plant an additional one alongside my garage for a future spot for growing raspberries. Eventually if things turn out allright I will be able to make good use of the narrow area alongside my garage.
