The Q&A Archives: Do raspberries and potatoes get along?

Question: I just pulled raspberry vines out of one of my raised beds. I am wanting to plant potatoes in the bed but heard that raspberrys are an aleo path for potatoes. Will it be o.k. since I removed the vines even though there may be some stragglers that I will be fighting ? Mary Williams Napa, CA

Answer: I haven't heard that raspberries and potatoes don't get along. I think it would be fine to plant potatoes in your old raspberry bed provided you get all the raspberry roots out and amend the soil properly for potatoes. I don't think you'll get any raspberry flavor spuds either!!
