hello all! I'm not just new to this forum but to gardening as well. so here is my situation and question for those with experiance...
there were quite a bit of raspberries growing in the sunny south side. they have done well over the years i've lived here but slowly began to get choked out by blackberries. I mean majorly choked out.
so i decided to cut the woody spent stocks. then i dug the raspberries up as carefully as i could. they have no connection to a parent plant as most of the big roots had died. but there were stil feeder roots that looked promising. i then lightly packed them in a wheel barrow with some soil for the night.
today i got rid of all traces of blackberries i could. i ammended the origional soil with some organic compost/planting mix and a little bit of hemlock bark. i soaked each raspberry stock with B1 at the root system, and planted them at the same level they were origionally growing. i finished this all with a long slow soak by gentaly showering the "new" bed.
now they are slightly wilted from the whole proscess but...
do they have a chance? anything i did wrong? should of done? could still do?
comments and advice for this unknowlegable beginning gardener would be greatly appreciated. thank you!
