Raspberry, after fruiting?

Posted: 22/07/2013 at 11:28

if they have fruited now you need to cut down to the ground the canes you have had fruit from, tie in the new canes to a frame of some sort and if your in a very exposed place you might need to shorten the new canes a bit, try not to let the clumps get too bushy they need air and sun keep them thined out you will have less fruit not more by having the canes so close together. you can wait a while before you do it 

hope this helps mine have just started to ripen so i am trying to get them before the birds
