Even tho I came here to find info on raspberries, I must thank you reeve1 for the info on blueberries! They're my 'mission' for this year's garden addition! Somewhere else in this forum I found that rabbits will make a meal out of blueberry plants (which I was blaming the deer for) so I'll be armed and ready this summer!

Such good ideas here! I have raspberries that just started to send out runners last year. I think I will start a raspberry bed in another location and put them there. I also have good blackberries that have gone wild and grow into the woods. I think I will dig those up soon and move them to the "berry" bed. I have sort of ignored all the berries last year but this year I'm going to pay more attention to organizing them!

I want to make raspberry and blackberry wine :-)

Oh cool - you know how to make raspberry wine? I would love that! Would you share your recipe? So often I haul my garden cart out into the woods looking for new stuff and I've yet to come across any berries or mushrooms. I do, however, find lots of animal evidence indicating that there would be NO berries left for me to find !! LOL !

I planted raspberry bushes last year. This year they are coming up and were looking great, then all of a sudden the leaves on one plant started turning brown and shriveling up. Every day it becomes worse. Now I notice leaves on another plant has started the same thing. What could it be?

I surely don't have all the answers but when I 'transplanted' some of my baby runners (off of the mother plants) I don't think I got enough of the roots and all of the leaves turned brown and shriveled also. Only a few of them died so I'm thinking it was a lack of root system that did it. Doubt if it was a bug or disease problem because all of them would have been affected. (at least for mine)

Did you start with new plants or transplants? And maybe you planted them too deep. ?? Don't give up - they're so worth the work!

I keep planting raspberries on my allotment but they never seem to grow, is this because I'm not pruning them correctly or is it something else, like the soil or something..?
