And so the crest of our hill has now become an ideal place for planting!
The first step was placing the new magnolia, which had a good spot in that area - we had a natural hole in the ground that would break an ankle if it were not filled, and both of us felt that was a good magnolia spot. With bare ground to either side the raspberries had found a home, so they will sit just south of the magnolia to stay in the sun as the tree rises higher.
This is subject to change, but for now it's better than them sitting in pots awaiting a firm decision.
