    Strange, I replied to this but it's vanished. Are you trying to suppress me LJ

    If they are summer ones No (unless you bought long canes) Autumn ones yes as they are Primocane (fruit on new wood)

    Yes of course as long as there are new stems. On planting cut back to c.6" above ground and you will have a good crop.

    Look at you showing off with the proper terms! Very posh.

    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?

    Nick,
    Hi, I'm new to The Grapevine, and new to Raspberry growing, so forgive me if this is a dumb question ! My mate Piglet rated Autumn Bliss, so I've taken his advice and today have bought 10 canes for one of my raised beds in my Kitchen Garden at home. They're bare-rooted, with lots of new white sucker-type roots, which is good I understand for potential new cane growth.... Above soil cane height would be about 18" ish, should I prune that, or no?
    Any advice would be welcome on this,
    Best wishes
    Wellie
