Extreme Heat Is Burning My Raspberries

b2smart added on July 6, 2012 | Answered

I ordered some plants and the week they mailed it was 100 degrees for 7 days in a row. I planted them right away and now they are drooped over and only two of the five look even partly alive. What do I do? The primocanes that were starting have also died.

They are definitely suffering from shock, especially due to heat stress. In conditions like yours, they should be watered twice a day. A translucent shade cloth can also help with afternoon shading to keep them cooler in these extremes. Other than that, there's really little you can do.
