Cane die back problem, what to do?
Sterling Silver was doing great. It had three canes to start with as a bareroot, but one of them never got going. I noticed it was dead about two weeks ago, and cut it out. But, now cane number two looks half dead but half alive. Half of the cane in a vertical fashion is dead on one side but green on the other, but clearly dying. So, I guess I have to cut it out. Cane three has a flower, but I see some brownish just a bit on it now. Will it make any more canes if they all die? I am nervous of about cutting out cane two leaving it only with one cane. I know bareroots are tricky they start out nice, but then they can hit the problem zone later one. The first year is the hardest year.
