Q.Do Raspberry Restrict Growth Of Other Plants?

Zone 83539 | Anonymous added on July 14, 2022 | Answered

I received many raspberry canes. I planted the best ones at the beginning of my row and the worst canes at the end. After a while some started to leaf and others did not. I left the dead-looking canes in, just in case they had life in the roots. Since we had irrigation and trellis supports in place I decided to use the space for other plants. I put in sunflowers and gladiolus. The sunflowers and glads are doing great where the raspberries look dead. But where the few canes have leafed out, nothing else seems to be growing.

Sunflowers and Raspberries will, likely, not play nice with each other. You may have found another species that they do not play nice with as far as the glads go, though!

Plants can make enemies, too, unfortunately.
