Blueberries....I remove spindly, weak "bits" in late winter. These will never carry fruit. I also take out the odd old wood. Easy
raspberries...summer varieties need fruited stems removed and young stems kept intact for next year. autumn raspberries cut to the ground as soon as fruiting is over.
gooseberries......prune over winter to remove old wood and keep centre open for good air circulation and easy picking. In summer prune side shoots to produce spurs ..these produce fhe best fruit
blackcurrants? remove fruited stems all the way to new shoots low down. I aim to take out one or two very old branches right to the ground. All this done asap after flowering. A generous feed too then to produce plenty of new growth.
rosslloyd, nothing complicated or anything to be nervous about
no need to google anything..it is all very simple
