    Default Raspberry summer or autum

    Hey everyone I aquired two raspberry canes in our garden when we bought the house and have no idea if the summer or autum canes how can I find out? Last year was our first summer in the house and we seemed to get raspberry’s on them around June time but also I got a couple in September off them both so now I’m confused!!

    Have you cut them back yet?

    Autumn rasps may still have dead flowers and fruit on the stalks (mine have) and they will all be green. Summer rasps will have dead canes for last season with new green canes for next on which they fruit.

    If you are unsure, cut out all the dead canes and tidy row.

    This year, Autumn canes will fruit at same time as summer rasps, but will also grow from the base and fruit on the new canes grown this year in the Autumn.

    Don't worry about what they are, just cut down any dead wood and see what happens in spring.
    Mine are muddled together (as you would expect), that's what I do
    If its brown, cut it down!!

    that does surprise me vc thanks I’ll prune them back tomorrow!
    Will probably add to them next year but planted some blackberrys and gooseberrys this year so new raspberrys can wait!

    It won't do any harm to leave the old wood on until you see new leaf buds forming. Then you know that cane is alive and deserves to live. The No-shows don't.

    Ohh well that’s even better a wait and see approach! Whilst we’re talking about them is the only difference between autum and summer ones the fruiting times and pruning?

    Probably
    May be just mine, but Autumn ones seem to be taller.
