Hi Sharon,

I'm not aware of any problem with raspberry leaves, and I've never seen anything bad about the flowers either, so I would think they are OK, but to be on the safe side, just feed small quantities as part of a mixed diet.

Hi there.  I belive that fruit bush leaves incluidng blackberry, raspberry and strawberry are generally not harmful but should only be offered in limited amount due to them being high in sugars.

Good point, Jonathan. I knew that the fruit was high in sugars, but never thought about the leaves.
