I have a Heritage raspberry bush and have cared for it in the conventional way of cutting them off at the ground after they go dormant. This year I cut them off below the lowest berry area so that I can get a spring/early summer crop. this is where I have questions.
the canes are 3' or even a little more (after clipping), should they be shorter?
After the first round of berries I will cut them again and they will berry in the fall. how short that time? and what about shading the new growth, any thing to consider here?
After they berry in the fall these canes cannot go another year, right?
I think the thing about raspberries is they are as hard to grow as weeds (another members illustration) so most people don't try to learn the finer details about them. but I am in the mood for that now.
