Repotting raspberries?

I have a raspberryear bush I bought this year. It gave me some good berries and it's about 4 feet tall in a large pot. I wanted to put it in a bigger pot but the question is: when?

Should I do it this fall, after I trim the branches that fruited, or in late winter, before it starts to warmup?

Also, should I trim the branches that fruited in the fall, or wait til late winter? I'm in Minnesota, so late winter=March I think.

Thanks much!!

Re: Repotting raspberries?

I would suggest moving any fruit plants in the dormant stage Amanda.
Once the leaves have fallen you can move them at your leisure.
Remember though that if they are in pots its best to wrap the pots against severe frosts as the roots are vulnerable in them.
As to pruning.
As you say they cropped in the late summer they must be a primo cane raspberry, so they can be cut down to just a couple of inches.
