Grow Raspberries

I love to grow raspberries, prefer them to strawberries and they are easier to grow and maintain.

More people should grow raspberries in my opinion. They provide plenty of fruit in season, and nothing beats going into the garden to pick a fresh raspberry. You need to prune them carefully and they will continue to supply a great crop.

There is a trick you can use to extend the fruiting season.

Standard advice is to snip back the stems to ground level either late January, to mid February. This will encourage the plants to develop new growth below the surface, which will grow later in the year.

This year try to only cut half the stems in this way, and the plants should respond with 2 flushes of fruit,as usual, but now once in the autumn/fall, but also one earlier in the year from the previous year’s canes.
