Hi all, I've just cut my Polka autumn fruiting raspberries to the ground and have pruned off the low hanging and crossing branches of the gooseberry bushes. I'm leaving the old leaves on the strawberries for now to give the crowns a bit of protection as we're likely to get more freezing weather and snow at some point. Also added well rotted farmyard manure to the raspberry bed and around the rhubarb which is just starting to grow (I meant to do that in the autumn!) Lots of weeding as I went, too (blummin willowherb appearing everywhere!)
Has anyone else been busy?
