I used to have some everbearing raspberries but they were growing in a poorly drained area of my yard and died off from root rot, I presume.   I'm wanting to plant new raspberries and looking for recommendations. I have drier area to plant them, now that I realize what happened. Any suggestions or experience to share?  I don't know what variety I had, they were here when I bought my house

Joseph Postman from the USDA germ plasm repository at Corvalis, in league with OSU Extension; gave a presentation a couple of years ago at either the All About Fruit Show, or a Think Spring event back when there was enough free energy to organize one.

The current thinking in the Willamette Valley is to utilize berm constructs for the planting of all your Cane Berries and Blueberries as well. Building up the soil level prior to planting will do much to help allay the maladies contributed by wet feet.

My favorite wife received an outstanding variety from a colleague who was also a master gardener.  She didn't know what it was called, but it was so much better than any other variety we've grown that we've stuck with it. Not an everbearing variety, it's the normal July bearing.  We always get extras, so let me know if you want some.  Some people prefer to meet up at the budding class, AAFS, etc, so that works if you remind me.  I wish I could tell you the name so you could just go out and get it , but I don't know the name.

Many people in Portland have taken to growing red raspberries in raised beds.

At the NWREC experimental station near Wilsonville, all of their caneberries are in long bermed

rows that rise 8 to 10 inches above the between-row pathways.

If you have SWD fruit flies in your area, early-season raspberry varieties avoid the August SWD crowd that

continues into early autumn everbearing season.

I bought from a Vancouver nursery a Monrovia Meeker raspberry in assumption it would do well. Wrong. It got yellow rust, and I cannot get more than 2 berries a year, been 2 years now. So...what to do?

I bought one each of Latham, Tulameen, Heritage, and Fall Gold at Wilco Farm Supply.  They had tubfulls of good looking plants with thick stems and large roots for $3 each. I also got several thornless raspberries from my in-laws, don't know the variety but probably are Canby.
