Good morning Jo 

At a guess, if the canes are about 3ft, then they're probably autumn fruiting ones which will fruit on the canes that are growing at the moment - nothing to do except give them some sort of structure to stop them flopping all over the place, a sprinkling of Fish, Blood and Bone, a mulch with manure or compost and ensure that they don't dry out.  

Next Jan/Feb cut all canes down to ground level.

Mike, so sorry to hear that - as Salino has said I do hope they've caught it early - I know from a friend's experience that there are various options for treatment and the outlook can be good.  

We will be thinking of you and sending positive thoughts. ((hugs))

New garden help identifying plants please!

What a lovely walk Verdun.  Envious here!  

Good not to rush things with your Mum - slow but sure is always good. 

Bit of a grim day here - I heard earlier that a dear and special friend will soon be transferring to a hospice for end of life care.  One of those people you meet as adults and you both feel that you were twins parted at birth - I've known she was ill, and knew the likelihood of this, but it doesn't lessen the feeling .................   and of course, our thoughts are with her adored husband too.
