Thanks Dave for your advice. I thought they may be past their best but I do not like wasting anything so do appreciate your advice. Will get digging!

I heard Bob Flowerdew on Gardeners Question Time last week talking about raspberries. He said that raspberry plants only last 3-4 years and then need replacing. Is this correct? My summer plants have been in 5years and did not crop well last year. I am trying to work out whether it is due to nutrient deficiency or whether the plants are passed their best. Do I dig up? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

All soil is wet at the moment so I wouldn't worry yet. It is too early to plant now anyway. Additionally raised beds drain well so as the weather warms and you begin growing crops you may find you need to water more frequently. I would leave all alone, let things settle and the worms begin their work and wait for the soil to warm for planting.

I inherited a patch of raspberries (summer fruiting) when I took on my allotment 5 yrs ago. They have fruited prolifically each year apart from last summer when the crop was much reduced. Was this just not the year for raspberries or do I need to do something? Any advice? Should I dig them up in Feb and rejuvenate the soil before replanting them? Do they need replacing completely? Thanks.

ACER BRILLIANTISSIMUM

Can you tell me when and how I prune my Acer Brilliantissimum? It is looking a little congested and last year suffered from scale insect.
