I bought a couple of "patio" thornless raspberry bushes and transplanted them into clay pots last month. They were nice and bushy. now the leaves are turning brown and the plants appear to be dying. I live in Southern California and water every other day. What am I doing wrong?

We grow those at the garden center where I work in Wisconsin and have to water them everyday, sometimes twice a day on very hot days when we haven't had clouds or rain for awhile. Our regional Bailey nursery salesman said the soil for them should always be moist. Plants in clay pots can also dry out quicker. Maybe try some fine mulch or the insides of diapers to help retain soil moisture
