Raspberry Plants

I want to plant raspberries in the spring but I must plant them where tomatoes and peppers were planted last year due to lack of space. Is there anything I can do to prevent disease? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you - bill@kbic-nsn.gov

If you would like to plant the raspberries there safely sooner, you can also try solarizing the soil. It only takes one season rather than 4 years. Here is more info on that:

Time is needed, at least 4 years, to safely plant new Raspberry plants in the soil that tomatoes and peppers were grown.
Verticillium wilt is likely harbored in the soil and would destroy the plants.
