Watering Blackberry and Raspberry Plants

Once blackberries and raspberry plants have been trimmed for the fall, do we still need to water them?

Generally when the plants are done fruiting they will need less moisture.
Continue to make sure your watering if the soil conditions are dry. Do this until they are dormant.

Should I Feed My Berry Bushes Now?

My gooseberries and currants had a severe sawfly infestation that stripped just about every leaf. Fruit had already set and was too sour to be eaten. Bushes are alive and have started to sprout. Have pruned old wood and non-sprouting twigs. Should I feed now to encourage new growth?

Logan and Raspberry Plants

I am in the process of moving and dug my berry plants up and put the roots in plastic bags. Unfortunately, I didn’t realize I should have put dirt in the bags as well. My daughter was supposed to water them but didn’t. Now they are dried out. Is there any way I can try to revive them?
thanks

This looks to be either Strawberry Leaf Spot or Strawberry Leaf Blight.

Cultural practices are the recommendations to control these diseases.

In the image your soil looks quite wet, along with the leaves on your plants.
Well draining soil and keeping watering from splashing onto the leaves.
Crop rotation will also help in controlling these fungus diseases.

Here are some articles with more information.
