Well---- have now carried out my soil test & to my surprise have discovered that whole of veg plot is 7.0-7.2 ie neutral & not alkaline as I'd thought----I tested 4 different parts of plot. So having read earlier advice to me re blueberries & raspberries, I'm thinking that I need to make the soil round the raspberries more acidic by adding fish blood & bone plus a mulch of multi purpose compost; & to grow my blueberries in separate pots with ericaceous compost---then I'll have cracked it!!!! Roll on summer!!!!!
And yes Forester2 I did only prune the brown canes that had fruited---thanks for concern!
