My firend gifted me a small potted raspberry plant. she said to keep it in full sun (6-8) hours a day.. and to water it everyday unless it rained, then no water.. I have been following her insturctions, but have noticed the most of the leaves have turned a very light green- yellowish.. For most plants, yellowish leaves are a sign of too much water..?? I have also noticed that the saucer fills with water each day I water the plant as well, was wondering maybe it doesn't like it's feet wet? There has been some new growth too, but the leaf color is starting to worry me..

Thanks for you help

Best Regards
