    I've often thought about mulching with grass cuttings but was worried that it would leech the nitrogen from the soil. Do you reckon I should go for it?

    I too inherited some overgrown raspberry canes of unknown variety. It's a long row and was in a right state. I thinned it out quite a bit and am gradually reducing the weeds around the base. Last year the fruits were excellent but this year they have been smaller and not as sweet along much of the row but I have noticed tonight that the canes at one end are much bigger so I need to work out what I've done better at that end of if it's just the light or something

    Some of us live in the past, always talking about back then. Some of us live in the future, always planning what we are going to do. And, then there are those, who neither look behind or ahead, but just enjoy the moment of right now.

    Which one are you and is it how you want to be?

    I have had autumn fruiting rasperrys in containers for about 15 years that have been ok. I have pulled out the roots and planted them in garden soil, fed with wood ash so I will wait and see.

    New rasp plants are only a couple of quid apiece and will fruit in a year (a little). I'd be ripping half out and replacing. I have a row of Joan j and a row of glen ample. Both thornless and plenty of berries. The berries off Joan j are huge. Taste wise they're both great.
