How to prune and tie in summer raspberries

Watch Monty Don prune his summer-fruiting raspberries after fruiting, then tying in the new canes.

By September your summer-fruiting raspberries should have finished cropping, so it's time to prune out the old stems and tie in the new ones that will carry next year's crop. In this video from Gardeners' World, Monty Don shows you how to tell which stems to cut and which to leave, and how to tie them all to supports with minimum effort.
