How do you tell which bit of growth on a raspberry is the bit thats going to fruit?
Essex, United Kingdom
Hello everybody! What a lovely weekend its been! I'm trying to get my old mothers vegetable/fruit patch sorted out - its been a bit neglected over the years but has about 15 raspberry canes and a couple of TayBerries. Last year I just cut down stuff indiscriminately in the hope of finding out what was what, but this year have got canes that have fruit on, which have leaves in sets of three and some that have no fruit or flowers, with leaves in sets of 5. Will the 5 leaved canes produce fruit next year or are they useless (as I am!) . Please help - I don't want to cut out the wrong bits! Hope you all had a productive weekend!
