If you want to plant a raspberry patch, the best time to do it is in the spring. In fact, some people say that planting raspberries can be as easy as putting out a few seeds and letting nature take its course from there. However, if you’ve never tried your hand at growing them before or have no idea what kind of soil they prefer, I would recommend starting early. Most raspberry plants require full sun exposure throughout their entire lives—so not only do they need lots of light but also must be planted in an area where temperatures don’t drop below freezing during the winter months. If your winters aren’t very cold (or normally mild), then maybe start cuttings instead!
