Hello,
Thank you for reading about my issue. I live in the Pacific Northwest. We have two beds (3 ft. W x 12 ft. L x 18 in. D) with raspberry bushes. For the most part, the bushes were planted four years ago. Last year, I took a few plants out of one of the beds and this spring put in new plants from a nursery so that all of the plants in both beds would be of the Tulameen variety. Until this year, the plants did well. This year, the leaves on bushes in the bed with the new plants started to dry up and some of the side shoots fell off. The berries were substandard. Eventually, the problem spread to the adjoining side of the other bed. I've cut down the problem fruiting canes in the one bed but am not sure what else to do to make our raspberries healthy again. Should I take out all of the plants and remove the soil and start again, or should I start again in a new location with new soil and new plants? That wouldn't be easy. Thank you in advance for considering this issue and any advice you might have.

Humm 😕 ???
Possible disease. Maybe someone hear can tell.
The yellowing leaves and. Good for you. For sending pic of cut stem.
Look to me like. Overwatering.
Cut back water and cultivate between watering. Plants will love you for that. Fertilizer too. I prefer manure. Thumbs up
