How can I fix possible overwatering of a potted raspberry plant?
First, check your drainage and fix as needed. Second, do not water--wait until the soil has significantly dried out some between watering intervals.

The leaves on the raspberry bushes started turning yellow last September, then turned brown and fell off. The canes turned brown and the berries shrivelled up. It has started again this year and is spreading. I would like to know if there is any spray I can use to stop it. I started these bushes three years ago and purchase disease resistant bushes.
Unfortunately, it sounds like your raspberry plants are suffering from Verticillium wilt fungus, which also commonly affect blackberries, tomatoes, and potatoes. There is little you can do now other than pull the plants and fumigate or sterilize the soil before replanting again.
I have 3 year old black raspberry plants. They are loaded with berries but some of the berries have light tan spots. I'm not sure what the cause of this is and how to fix the problem.
It may be orange rust, which is dangerous for black raspberries. Typically, this disease appears on the leaves, but it can occasionally show in the fruit. Here is more information on that:
It could be another form of fungus as well. You can treat the plant with fungicide, which will kill most fungus, but will not kill the range rust mentioned above.
We have recently moved to a home with existing raspberry bushes. I have no idea how to take care of them. I have recently weeded it and cut back some dead branches. I'm concerned because they don't seem to be producing many berries. What is producing seem to be drying up before I can pick them. There is also fungal looking dirt around one of the bushes. What should I do at this point in the season? Should I just let them go this year and start over next spring?

You could try pruning and perhaps amending the soil around the bushes with compost or organic matter.
I have some raspberry and blueberry plants still in pots. Wild blackberries grow all around. Is it a good or bad idea to plant my berry plants near the blackberries? The plants are in (I think) 1 gal. pots from the nursery and some are starting to dry out. I don't want them to die. Please help. I'm in eastern Tn. , Zone 6.
It is true that you should not plant raspberries within 300 feet of any wild blackberry bushes. You should also stay away from tomatoes or potatoes. Wild blackberries can carry fungus and viruses that can make your raspberries sterile and this precaution prevents your raspberries from catching the fungus. This problem does not affect blueberries.
Can you plant raspberry and blackberry plants in summer or early fall? Not looking for berries anytime soon just want to plant them this year. We live in northwest MN.
Spring or early fall is the best time to plant these berries. Do not however, plant them near wild berry plants. As the wild types harbor a host of fungal and viral disease than can spread.
I have some everbearing raspberries planted in raised box beds. When do I prune and what do I take out of the beds? I have 20 plants and I'm going to put up a trellis for them.
