What is happening to my raspberry plants? - Knowledgebase Question

Question by Neathteacher
August 28, 2017
These are new canes planted in a very large container. They were growing well with a few flowers.
Then this happened to them. The whole plant is affected.
Can I cut them right down and hope for the best next year or are they beyond hope. I think they are summer fruiting.

Something is eating your berry bushes. Have you looked for insects or caterpillars? After you find the culprits, you can treat for them.

They may have done their damage and are gone. For future reference;
