Ready for raspberries

Pruning raspberries


Now is the time to look after raspberry canes – this is your last chance to prune established autumn-fruiting raspberries. You should also be pruning back newly planted raspberries – cut them back to 30cm (12in) if you have not already done no. Summer fruiting raspberries meanwhile, need to be tipped back to 15cm (6in) above their top support wire.
