September tip: blackcurrants and rasperries

Blackcurrant bushes: remove the wood which has carried this year’s crop.  Raspberry canes: for the summer-cropping raspberries such as Glen Ample, Tullameen and Leo, cut out all the old canes to make room for the new canes. After the autumn-cropping raspberries such as Autumn Bliss and All Gold have all been picked and have finished cropping, cut ALL the canes back to ground level. Remove/treat strongly-growing weeds.
