mis-shapen raspberries

Posted: 21/06/2014 at 11:27

I'm a bit confused now; I've read several guides with differing advice, so what is the optimum pruning strategy for this autumn and next spring, do you think?

Thank you for that, Dove. As it happens, my raspberries are Polka as well, although they do seem to fruit quite early (we live in the south-west). Do you have any ideas about the possible lack of pollination? Is there anything I can do?

Could it be the weather this year? I have a 3-year old asparagus bed and I've never had asparagus beetle before. Do you know any treatment that might work?

My raspberry canes are 5 years old, but both last year and this year the raspberries have been mal-formed - they only have about 5 "segments" to them and are noy worth picking. They have been fed each year with specialist soft fruit feed. What am I doing wrong?
