You discussed raspberries today in the TNT article which prompted my two questions: 1. When the raspberries start to die back because they are done producing, do you water less or continue water the same amount. A follow-on question - do raspberries like a lot of water or will they tolerate some dry soil. 2. One of our rows of raspberries, is a very old variety we have been told - as it was grown by the original owners of our property in the 1940s. We believe it is called a Cuthbert. Do you know of any garden locally in the Puget Sound region that has this variety? Thank you. View Answer
