    I'll tell you about the raspberry "with legs". I borrowed it from a neighbor, I really liked it: early maturing, abundant fruiting, and the berries on it are relatively large. But I don’t know the name of the variety. I only know that it is garden and not renovated. And one more thing: this raspberry moves from place to place.

    In the spring, I planted the dug out lignified shoot in a sunny and not lowland place designated for the future raspberry tree. There, raspberries began to grow on me, giving in the second year many shoots nearby. In the third year, at the beginning of the season, I installed supports for it, going around it all along the perimeter with four crossbeams installed on four stakes driven into the ground, and also let additional crossbars through the middle so that branches in the center of the raspberry tree could be tied to them. Well, the extreme ones, respectively, to the side supports.

    Every year after picking berries, a little later, I remove the old branches that have borne fruit, thereby giving freedom to the young. In the fall, when the sprouts become woody, I remove the lowest and thinnest of them, then I carefully examine the remaining ones: are there any sprouts with round or oval thickenings among them. If there are any, I also remove them: in such thickenings, the larvae of the raspberry gall midge huddle. If there are thickenings of processes, I thin them out.
    Then I cut off the tops of the remaining branches, leaving bushes with a height of 1, 6-1, 8 m, and so I leave it until spring. Raspberries overwinter perfectly. In the spring, I tie the branches to the supports and carefully add fertilizer (nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium) to the soil under the bushes. And during the summer, sometimes I sprinkle ashes under the raspberries.

    Gradually, from year to year, raspberries move to another place and go out of the control of the supports, so you have to renew the land in the place where it grew, and re-plant the shoots there or look for a new place suitable for it.
    Of course, growing such a "restless" variety in one place is troublesome, since rearrangement of supports, preparation of new sites for planting require additional time, but I do not want to part with it at all. You will look at other varieties - they still have green berries, but the "fidget" has ripe ones, you can pick it.

    The tops dry on raspberries, the leaves turn yellow along with the veins. The berries are dense, underdeveloped, on one side the barrel is whitish. From top dressing she gave potassium, nitrogen, superphosphate, horse manure. Sprayed with Bordeaux liquid, solutions of ferrous sulfate and colloidal sulfur. By the way, strawberry leaves turn yellow as well. In general, these problems began with the plum, and then with the cherry. What about the plants?

      - Yellowing of leaves along with veins is a sign of many plant problems, but without a photo it is difficult to determine which ones. One of the possible options is an imbalance of nutrients, which can cause a large number of supplements with macronutrients without the use of a complex of microelements. However, given the description of the berries on raspberries (underdeveloped, uncharacteristic color), as well as drying young tops of the shoots and yellow leaves, it can be assumed that you have a viral infection on your site (raspberry friable virus). Unfortunately, viral plant diseases are incurable, so the bushes will have to be uprooted. For other cultures, the description is extremely scarce, so it is impossible to even guess the problem.
