Container raspberries

queensinfoMay 13, 2013

2nd year plants. Should I prune any of the canes or just allow the plants to do their thing? I am wondering if less canes will give a better harvest?

Not sure, but you might also get some good suggestions over on the Fruits forum.

i figured i would see what happens here and then post there if nothing. There should be a way to cross post, but i guess it would get confusing.

I believe the pruning method depends on what type of raspberry you have, whether it's summer fruiting or autumn fruiting. I'd be interested in hearing how your's do. I've got blueberries and am contemplating raspberries.

I have fall rasps. Caroline, Anne and I think heritage. I think I am going to leave them alone. That is an interesting link but 2 stems seems like too little but what do I know. Maybe I will take out a few of the smaller canes if I can see them through the forest.
