I can’t believe it, but it appears I have lost every single one of my raspberry canes due to what I assume is winter injury. Every cane on about 20 plants(or about 50 canes). My sweet cherries are fine and bloomed and half of my triple crown canes survived with just laying them on the ground and covering with leaves. I am a little(ok…a lot) disappointed by this because I was going for my first big summer crop to try and avoid SWD in August and Sept. Now it looks like I will have to battle them again this year for a primocane harvest this fall.
I am in south central Iowa in zone 5b. We had two nights of -13F in December and one night of -18 in January or Feb. Is -18 enough to kill every cane? Or was it the -13 we had in December? Ugh! Very bummed!
