I bought some raspberry plants at a yard sale in May 2010. They survived last summer even though they were practically overrun by some other viney plants, but they didn’t produce any fruit. I wasn’t alarmed, because they were transplants, but I did have big plans for them this summer.
I was hopeful early on because there were many blooms, but they have all dried up and disappeared. The canes look fairly healthy and they have been growing rapidly all summer, but the few blooms left are drying up too. It has been very dry here since June and I have been watering the plants when I water my very productive square foot garden. Perhaps I’m not watering the raspberries enough?
So, I need some help from the amazing gardeners that visit and read this blog. You are always so helpful when I ask for help solving my gardening woes.
Why are my raspberry blooms drying up or disappearing when the canes look so healthy? Is it from under-watering? Is it too early to expect fruit after transplanting the canes last summer? Did I cause this when I cut the canes down to the ground last fall?
Any advice on raspberry gardening and the answers to my questions will be helpful to me and the other readers here at Family Balance Sheet. Thanks so much!
