Raspberry Plants

Extra Cane, Looks Like Weed, but Not Sure


wenran added on May 29, 2011 | Answered

We have both raspberries and blackberries that we planted last year. This year we noticed large stocks that don't have the same leaves, nor any fruit. But they are right in with both kinds - we think they are weeds. We just aren't sure. Does anyone have the same problem, and do you know what they are? Can we pull them?
