I just cut the rapberrys down, an noticed the worms had gone all the way to the bottom of plant and upward all the way. 

I have 24 plants, and it looks like they might be a few years old because the root system is everywhere. I uprooted one but I thought I better ask before I pull them all out. Is this rapberry patch savable or do I need to pull them all out?

thanks For any help you can give me .

Lisa

November 23, 2013 November 23, 2013 <![CDATA[Transplanting Raspberry ]]> http://www.burpee.com/community/discussion/715/transplanting-raspberry- We purchased a home where raspberry was left go and has run amuck among the weeds in the woods. Good crop but very hard to harvest. I want to transplant it in a proper row with a short support for the canes. We are having a pretty mild November. Can I do this now or wait until spring? Now I can easily tell which canes are first year and will provide berries next year.

<![CDATA[Raspberry patch out of control]]> http://www.burpee.com/community/discussion/735/raspberry-patch-out-of-control My raspberry plants are out of control.  They are getting very large and are spreading so much that it is difficult to get into the patch to pull weeds (also out of control) and I can barely get to many of the berries by August. The plants range in varieties, and are all between 2-5 years old.  I'm trying to decide how to prune them, train them, and get them back in some kind of order this year.  If possible, would prefer NOT to sacrifice having at least some of both early and late harvest, because I truly love snacking on sun-ripened berries while I'm out in the garden throughout the summer.  I would appreciate any suggestions or advice on managing these wily brambles!

<![CDATA[Strawberrys - Zone 9 - Florida - question for when it gets really hot]]> http://www.burpee.com/community/discussion/535/strawberrys---zone-9---florida---question-for-when-it-gets-really-hot This is the first year that I am growing strawberries.    I bought 25 bare roots plants (Sweet Charlie - June Bearing) as soon as they were available this winter.  They are growing in containers - one plant per pot/container.   Not many had flowers, but I snipped off those that did as instructed.   It seems like the first year is for getting established.

I have searched but haven't found the answer regarding what to do with the plants when it gets really hot (June-mid October).    Any advice would be appreciated.    Also, when does strawberriy plants produce runners?

<![CDATA[blueberries flowering in December]]> http://www.burpee.com/community/discussion/497/blueberries-flowering-in-december Hello All,
A few weeks ago we got 2 blueberry bushes (1 Jewel, 1 emerald ) and now they are both starting to flower.We live in Little Rock, Arkansas and the plants have been outside since we got them. Is there any actions we can take or should take so we can still get fruit in the spring? Too late to remove the buds?

thank you

tim

<![CDATA[Having problems getting soil acidic]]> http://www.burpee.com/community/discussion/444/having-problems-getting-soil-acidic This is the first year I've planted blueberries.  I have a tophat plant that looks to be doing fine, however, when I test the acidity level of the soil, it is nowhere near acidic, and I worry that this will prevent the plant from producing fruit.  I have been adding dried coffee grounds to the soil weekly and testing it about a week later, but still no results.  I like to try to garden as naturally and chemically free as possible, so is there anything besides or in addition to the coffee grounds that will make the soil more acidic? What amount of dried coffee grounds is sufficient, and how often after I add them should I re-test the soil?

<![CDATA[Dead blueberry]]> http://www.burpee.com/community/discussion/445/dead-blueberry I had a 10-12 year old fully established  blueberry bush that did not seem to make it after this winter.  It is odd because all my other bushes are already fruiting (it was a mild winter here in chicago and Spring came early).  Do blueberries ever go dormant?  I hate to cut it down without being sure that it is truly dead.  The branches do not seem to be dried out, but I do not see green and it has no leaves at all. What could have happened?  The soil is acidic enough...

<![CDATA[Strawberry plant fertilizer question]]> http://www.burpee.com/community/discussion/314/strawberry-plant-fertilizer-question I planted a new patch of Strawberries last year late summer/ early fall. They grew and spread out well filling in the areas nicely. I keep them inside a garden fence and covered them with plenty of straw for the winter to protect them. Now in the early spring when weather starts to warm out more I want to fertilize them with some type of fertiziler, preferably organic. Any suggestions greatly appreciated. Never grew berries before and so far has not been hard,other than keeping them watered nothing to it once you put them in the ground. I have read several articles about pests that affect berries and how to keep them growing, but nothing mentions fertiziler suggested. Really looking forward to those new strawberries early this year, may get a hoop house set up over them to see how early I can get them to set fruit.
