How to prune everbearing raspberries
like to prune our everbearing
raspberries so that they produce both a summer and a fall crop,
which is a bit trickier than the conventional method of mowing the
plants all the way down in the winter and getting one big fall
crop. If you're looking for a double harvest, you still prune in
the winter, but have to be a bit more specific about what you cut off.
If you wanted, you could stop
pruning here, but thinning out some of the living canes will give you
bigger, healthier berries in the spring. The rule of thumb is to
leave four or five of the thickest canes per linear foot of row.
The photo above is a before and after shot of this last step in pruning
our raspberry patch.
