Advice on growing Raspberries

hi lorraine are they summer ones or autumn ones i have both if summer ones then you have done fine just put a bamboo cane next to them and tie it to them,not to tight so they have some support if autumn ones you need to cut them down to ground level and they dont need no support they are both very easy to grow,all i do is add some bonemeal to the soil around them.
