Raspberry care/watering

Around Father’s Day, I planted 3 raspberry bushes (non everbearing). I planted them in excellent compost in a raised bed. I have watered them daily in the mornings and they are showing distress. The leaves are curling and some are brown and brittle. Do I need to water them more frequently or more heavily in the mornings? This is my first go with raspberries and I truly want to succeed. Thanks for any tips.

It is possible that there are air pockets in the soil that are affecting the roots ability to take up water. I would tamp firmly on the root balls to help collapse any air pockets. They may also have a fungal disease, so I would treat the plants with a fungicide as well.
