Question by jenniferkro3

I was doing some research about growing raspberries and it said to buy certifed disease free raspberries. I didn't see that on my vine that I bought and was wondering if HD is selling certified disease free vines and if so where on the purchased pot/tag would I see that if I just missed it.

Thank you

As long as you purchase your raspberries from a local nursery or Home Depot garden center, you can rest assured they are certified disease free (it's a nursery standard). The problems arise when you get raspberry plants directly from a neighbor or a Farmer's Market, etc. You never know about the health of these plants. The raspberries you purchased from Home Depot are free of diseases.
