I moved into my home in Nov 2017. Both gardens need a lot of attention. I have big plans but only have a small budget. A keen gardener and DIY'er ☺

Afternoon everyone. Is anyone able to explain the colourless patches on some of my raspberries please? Is it bad or maybe just sun bleached? #disease-remedy

Thank you for replying Elaine, I appreciate it. There's only been a handful affected but it would be good to know if they're still edible 🤔 @wagsmomthompsonbtinternetcom

It’s sun scalding, perfectly fine to eat...we don’t normally see it as commercial growers throw them out.

We moved ours this year and they've not produced 😔. These look crackers! Is that a cuprinol painted bench? 🤔

Hi @craigh7. Sorry to hear your raspberries didn't grow this year. Maybe they were slightly traumatised. Hopefully next year they'll produce some for you! Yes, I used the cuprinol 'garden shades' range...stone, forget me not and seagrass, and then used a mix of the two latter colours for the inbetween shade. Really pleased with the results so then painted my potting shed, chiminea, picnic table, plant rack, chairs and table to match 😂

I need to get this in the ground and soon as it's looking quite tired in its original pot ☹. The fruits are tiny too so hoping that once its planted they will become a lot bigger!
