Help with Blackberry pruning and winterizing

fredm112September 6, 2010

I am a relatively new gardener and have planted several varieties of berries, now that winter is coming quickly, I find myself short on knowledge as far as pruing them for winter. Any help from people who know what they are talking about would be greatly appreciated.

1. Prime Jan Blackberries

2. Apache Blackberries

3. Loganberries

Questions are, which do I trim back to the ground, which do I want to save the cane and which do I want to save all of the vine growth from this year? I can't understand a lot of what I read, one year vines, second year etc. so please be as specific as you can be.

Thanks for any assistance from knowledgable people and good gardening to all.
