Raspberry failure

Thanks. Do the shoots look anything like potatoe shoots cos I had 3 of them quite close to the later variety cane and my mother in law told me they were potatoe shoots which wouldn't surprise me as I hav found a few round the garden where my compost might have had a little bit of potatoe skin. So could I have pulled some up my mistake? I'm sorry if that makes me sound thick but I'm fairly new to this so am still learning.

I know the feeling. Ants are driving me insane. Every pot is full of ants, everywhere I dig there are more ants. Doesn't matter what I do I just can't get rid of them. Last year I had a little greenhouse thing on my patio to protect plants from bugs. Went out one day and it was full of flying ants. They just nest everywhere. Under every stone or black sheeting lies a nest full of eggs.

I think it was around march, yes I did soak them. I think I've kept them moist. Not hard in this weather though is it? Any other ideas?

Hi, This is my, first post so don't really know what I'm doing, but here goes. I purchased 3 raspberry bare root plants, one for each season. I planted them ages ago but so far there is no sign of life. Is this normall for the first year or have I done something wrong. They just look like 3 sticks in the ground. What should I do? Your help would be appreciated. Thanks
