Like everyone, they love sunny location away from too much wind - keep in mind, the plants will grow to about 5ft tall before they are ready to prune. You might also want to add some well rotted manure to you soil if needed. The plants will spread so give them about 30cm between each plant - you will probably need to support the plants or ever net them to keep off hungry birds, so planting in nice straight rows is handy down the line.

You will almost certainly need to support your plants, either with individual stakes or a line system.
|A net is a good idea - unless you want to share with the birds|
When fruiting is over the plants have a little more growing to do before it is time to prune away the old canes. If you don't prune the plants they will take more and more space each years and give you no extra berries - which is a bad deal.
Spreading and Aftercare
Raspberries are good spreaders and new plants will begin to appear around the original plants. You can transplant these in August each year to avoid damaging the mother plant earlier in the year. The raspberry will loose most of their leaves in the winter but don't worry, they will come again in spring - unless they get frozen.
