I just bought 2 raspberry plants that are just coming out of dormancy from wally world. Does anyone have any tips for me?

One question I have is can you grow them against a fence or lattice?

There are a number of different varieties & types of raspberries - all with different culture requirements. Some bear only once a year; some twice. Care differs for both.

What variety did you buy? That will give you something to search for on the internet as far as how to plant & take care of them.

The package just says red raspberry. Really doesn't tell me which variety it is.

Hmmm - guess the only way you'll be able to find out which type they are will be to plant them & see what happens - lol!

As for your question, you can definitely grow them along a fence or up a lattice, but keep in mind that some varieties only fruit on new wood, so the old has to be pruned out every year. That's why it helps to know what kind you have.

Is there any info on the package at all re: growing/care, or maybe a company name as to where they came from?
