    Hi every one. I have some very sad looking raspberries, I have posted some pics. They're watered every eve and fed weekly/fortnightly. There autumn fruiting so normally big and full at this time of the year and they currently look pretty dead! Any advice what the problem is and what I can do to save them !! Thank you.

    Hi @Kate1616 - it looks like something eating them - try looking under the leaves to see what is lurking. I suspect caterpillars. If so, then use your pesticide of choice - soapy water if you don't like chemicals.

      Hi there. Yep looked many times and never seen anything on them, wonder if it's something to small to see eating them!

      I get very confused by raspberries! Mine have been fruiting for about a month now - it seems they overlap summer and autumn........so when should they be pruned??
