Post New raspberry canes -- should they be leafing out by now?
Hi all -- About a month ago I planted 5 Tulameen raspberry canes and 1 Heritage raspberry cane all in a row. One of the Tulameen canes has started producing leaves, and the Heritage, which was a more developed plant (it already had leaves) is producing flowers. But the other Tulameen canes just look like sticks, with no sign of life. Are they dead? Or should I just be patient? I have a chance to buy more Tulameen canes this weekend, which is why I'm wondering ... I'm in Vancouver, BC. Dorothy

Dorothy, scratch the bark up high on a couple of the canes, if you find 'green' tissue underneath, I'd leave them alone. If they're 'dead brown,' keep scratching further down until you find that 'living green.' If you don't - they're dead, though I'd check each one.

I'd also ordered Tulameen's, three years ago, along with 4 other varieties. As they were all held deeply dormant before shipping, I believe they took longer than I expected before leafing out, and at different involves... But do the scrape-test - and either be patient, or buy more :?

Thanks, Viron. You guys are a godsend for an anxious (and not wealthy) newbie. Best, Dorothy
