I have someone to dig the patch - the roots are dry - should they be dug in or removed?

Thanks Jimmy but as an old and not very agile woman, I was hoping there was an easier solution!

I was advised to sow green manure last autumn in the vegetable garden.  It grew well and I strimmed it earlier this spring.   I am trying to dig it in but it is a mass of roots and new green shoots.  Any suggestions?

Thanks for that, I will persevere and grudgingly buy this year's rasps from the local farm shop.  Maybe 2013!

They had plenty of well rotted horse manure in the winter.  There are also some new plants appearing nearby.  Will they be worth keeping?

They never flowered.  Big and heathy but barren!

I have had raspberries for many years but very little fruit.  Early this year I replanted all the healthy canes which are now abundant but without fruit.  Should I give up?
