    Mint yellowing

    You only need good strong roots, the top growth can be cut off.High Nitrogen feed would be best, but in good soil it should be ok without feeding too much.

    Wilting raspberry canes

    I'd try a one off sequested iron feed first, it should green up the foliage. Then for the rest of the season just a balanced feed should be ok.
