Hi!

I'm still relatively new in gardening.
A couple of weeks ago, I planted a blackberry bush in my garden. All went well until the past few days when I suddenly noticed that the lower leaves were turning yellow and withering.
The other leaves were also developing black contours on their edges and gradually turning brown...
I googled the problem and verticillium wilt came up as the most probable cause :((
Looking closer at the bushes surrounding that blackberry bush (verbenna & melissa) I found that their leaves were also tinted yellow and brown...

Please give me your advice.
Does it look like the blackberry bush is contaminated with VW?
Should I take it out of the earth and pot it (to stop it spreading to surrounding plants)?
Thanks for your help!
