Pruning Raspberries

Raspberries are finished producing for the 2012 year. The vegetation is cut to ground level. New vigorous growth begins in he Spring of 2013 and the plants bear fruit starting in September until frost. The vegetation was put through the chipper/shreder and added to the compost pile.

Pruning raspberries
“Summer-fruiting raspberries fruit on one-year-old canes that are cut out after harvest and then will replaced by young canes.
Autumn-fruiting varieties are cut to the ground in late winter to make way for new canes that will grow from the base and fruit the same year.”
