raspberries and california poppies
I had a great stand of red raspberries. This year, California poppies seeded themselves there as the new shoots began and I thought they looked like a fine understory. But all the raspberries died. They grew to 2 feet and withered. Perhaps there is another reason, but they had grown well for three years and the only change was this prettiness. I think california poppies may be very bad companions to raspberries.
