Raspberries looking shriveled

Asked April 26, 2019, 3:41 PM EDT

I noticed some of my raspberry bushes are looking weird. Their leaves seem smaller and lighter in color and maybe a bit shriveled. Do you know what is wrong with them? I am trying to get my raspberries back because I lost them all a couple of years ago.

Hi,
Thanks for reaching out with your question.
There could be a number of reasons you are observing what appear to be chlorotic symptoms and stunted, malformed leaves on your raspberries - it could be a nutrient deficiency or one of several diseases. I can't give you a great answer from information provide online. What I'd recommend is taking photos and/or a sample of your raspberry plant to your local Marion County Master Gardeners. You can reach them at 503-373-3770.
