My raspberry keeps dying and idk why

I purchased new plants online, and both are struggling. They both get full sun, both repotted in FoxFarm Ocean potting mix. Do these guys not do well in containers? Do I need to add extra horticultural charcoal to the soil? #GoldenEvergreenRaspberry
0ft to light, indirect
4” pot with drainage
Last watered 10 months ago
Mine are in the ground…put them in 2wks ago and they are growing like crazy. I have never tried in a pot so I’m not sure if that’s the issue or not. Mine are south but they get some shade from the trees so they get a mix of direct/indirect all day depending on where the sun is. I’m also not far from you. I’m in the North hills
I've got some in containers and they keep wilting unless they get loads of water every day, now that the weather has gone sunny. It's much harder work having them in containers. Do yours perk up at any point or just gradually get worse? πŸŒΏπŸ’š
@LuxuryMint it seems to gradually get worse. I have 1 in a green house and 1 indoors. Both in containers. It's been warm so we're watering the outdoor plants twice daily. The indoor plants I water deeply and then check back every food days

There appears to be a tiny shoot trying to start at the base
It sounds like you are giving them everything possible in terms of care. Fingers crossed the new shoots are a sign they are turning a corner πŸ€žπŸŒΏπŸ‘
