where to plant new raspberries in home garden

Asked January 19, 2021, 8:56 PM EST

I am currently ripping out an old planting of everbearing raspberries infected with crown root borers. How far from this bed could I plant the new bed to discourage infecting new canes. Also how far can I plant them from my marionberries? Thanks so much, Lynne Holmes in Hood River.

It's recommended that cane berry rows be planted 7-10 feet apart. If you are certain you are dealing with an insect rather than a disease like root rot you may need to use preventive measures to control them. Below is a link to Oregon State's document titled Cane Fruit-Raspberry crown borer.
