Raspberries, newly planted

LeifUKLeifUK Posts: 573

I planted some bare root autumn raspberries in winter, plenty of compost in the holes, pruned to six inches above soil. Only one is showing signs of life, with leaves sprouting from the stem. I expected new canes to grow from the base. What should happen please?

My summer raspberries are coming into leaf nicely, with new canes appearing at the base. The soil is heavy clay.

    Give it a little while longer. Mine are only just sprouting.

    Yes, I think it comes down to patience. Mine are only about 1ft off the ground at the moment. Once it starts sprouting it will do so quite quickly.
