I cut mine down to the ground in early spring and they have grown well and now have buds on them, but isn't this very late? I seem to remember picking them in early September in other years. How are yours doing?

Ours are running late too. I think almost everything is late this year probably due to our weird weather. Let's hope for a late fall.

Thanks Barbe for the response. It's reassuring to hear yours are late too. The canes look healthy so they should produce soon with this hot weather.

Hi Dotty, I don't cut mine in spring, but in winter; in summer, after the spring crop, I cut the canes back by about half. Those then produce the fall crop, which I'm in the middle of right now. You might want to adjust the timing of your pruning. My spring crop was very late, but not the fall crop, so the two very nearly overlapped this year!
