hi lorrainspoona i have always grown autumn raspberries against a fence you just plant them around six inches from fence and cut them down to the ground around feb or march and they dont need any staking,blackcurrants grow into a big bush unless you prune them also gooseberries you plant them the same as the rasberries and i always cut about one third off every march it keeps them small and the fruit are much bigger but not so many of them good luck.

it certainly is GG although its getting late my rant for the day is cos my back garden runs alongside a school playing field the kids(the little angels) congregate in a corner two feet away from the boundery to have a fag then they decide to throw whats left of there lunch over my garden,bananas,tune rolls the lots,the other day they took great delight in pulling off a branch and lobbing it over, i phone up the school,who do nothing i shout at the kids who give me a load of abuse so latly i collectit all up and just lob it back.i doubt if the headmistrice know what goes on should i write to her, rant over ahh thats better
