Response to Skidmore (Original post)

1. FWIW

The berries are related to roses. all do well with sufficient sunlight, and in case of drought, heavy mulch and frequent watering.
Your berries will come back, some of them at least. they spread by underground runners, trust me, nothing really kills all of them.
The only thing that really screws up berry production is too much rain and not enough sun. Then mold spreads.
So if you can figure out a way to keep them decently watered, they should do well.
Think of pine mulch, if you can..nice and acid and blocks heat from the roots.

Good luck.
