Raspberries and Loganberries

    4 responses

Barney starts with ...
The raspberries and loganberries that I purchased from Daleys are fine plants and growing well but some have leaves that are being severely eaten by someting I cannot see and others have leaves that appear to have a fungus infection. Are there any safe SYSTEMIC sprays that I can use to protect the plants from bug pests and fungus infection? Barney

I am growing raspberries like Barney and when it was young it seemed to have the same symptoms eg constantly being eaten. I caught a few grasshoppers in the act and the leaves had an unhealthy brown colour like in picture 3 perhaps a fungal disease.

As it got older we took it out of the wind (I am growing it in a pot) and sprayed it with confidor to try and stop the bugs from pillaging it. Perhaps we should have sprayed it with a fungal spray.

However now it is a lot better. Picture 2 shows the quality of the new growth. We even have some developing fruit as seen in Picture 1.

Picture 4 shows how half the bramble or vine has that unhealthy colour and the other half is extremely healthy. On the tips is the fruit.

Dear Correy, I have now sprayed with Confidor but already my bushes like yours are developing new growth that appears healthy and I have had some fruit. Thank you for your advice. To ANOM I will spray as you suggest at leaf fall

I also have some red currants and these have not done anything. There is no new growth and the existing leaves are all suffering from some form of fungus I think. I am afraid to spray unless I knew it was the correct thing for currants as any further loss of leaves would indicate the plant was dead!!
