    My new raspberry canes (for next year's fruit) in my patch are keeling over! At soil level the cane is brown but the leaves are healthy. Any thoughts? Thanks.

    I just had another look, and it's the branches from the canes that are dropping off - we had a killer snow in April here, Cedar which is south of Nanaimo, and I think the weight of 18 inches of snow could be the problem. What do you think?
