Hi, I have a fairly happy raspberry patch which is adjacent to a rather shady patch. I was considering planting potatoes there but I'm wondering if the two plants would interfere with each others nutrients. Would someone please enlighten me? Much appreciated.

I would suspect the vigorous raspberry runners would pucture your potatoes and when you dug these perforated pearls you would damage the raspberries - kind of a lose lose situation

A much better companion for raspberries is vanilla ice cream :~)

On another note stawberry growers in Florida are growing delicious "sweet Strawberry onions amongst there stawberries and getting a buck(US) a piece for them.
