Q. My summer fruiting raspberries and blackcurrants have all been picked. Would this be a good time to prune them?
Although they are still in leaf, pruning at this time will allow the remaining stems to mature better and encourage formation of next year’s fruit buds.
However, leave raspberry cane tying-in till winter when there are no leaves to hamper the running knot.
