Accidental raspberry massacre
I just came home from work to find that my loving husband had pulled up all of the new shoots in our raspberry patch, thinking they were weeds. The patch is now very sparse and I'm worried it won't regrow those shoots, which were very strong and probably ready to fruit next year. I'm even more worried that pulling up those strong shoots will prove too much of a shock to the patch and we'll lose all our precious berries! Do you have any advice on making sure the plants stay healthy through this shock, or reassurance that the new growth will return in time...?
