Raspberry cane problems
I have everbearing raspberries that I cut to the ground last winter. This year I have a huge bear spot with no canes at all. About 1/2 of my canes are 2-3 feet tall, but many are only about 12 inches high and already making fruit. I just checked the ph in 9 different areas of my patch. It seems that the taller canes have a ph between 6.5 and 7.0. The bear spots are at 6.0. I use 10-10-10 fertilizer on them in the spring. They are not mulched. I keep reading about canes growing to 6 feet tall. Why are my canes so short and why am I missing canes from the bare spots? Help. What am I doing wrong?
