I have planted apricot tree (bareroot) and rasberry plants a month ago.

Apricot was sprouting but all of the sprouts, tips were dried out.

I watered it well but leaves are crisp.

My rasberry is becoming pale and dries out. Are these disease?

Can I save this plant in any ways? please help!!

Hi Jamie, welcome to Permies! Here's what I think might be going on with your plants. I believe your apricot tree is showing symptoms of fertilizer burn. The raspberry plant looks to me like it could be something called chlorosis, which could be either a lack of iron (not very likely) or the soil pH is too high, or too much fertilizer has been applied. Nutrients to be "locked out" meaning they are in the soil but unavailable for the plant, usually caused by pH being too low or too high. Interestingly, the new young leaf growth in the picture of your raspberry looks nice and healthy and green so if it were my raspberry I'd just give it time. If that apricot tree belonged to me, I would remove it from the pot, shake then rinse all the soil off the roots with a hose and repot it or preferably plant it in the ground. Hope this helps!

Thank you James.
I uprooted both plant and plant them appropriately.
Both plants seems to have no new healthy white root growing out of them.
I may have watered them too much.
I will see what happens now.
Thank you!!
