Autumn fruiting raspberries. When do you cut down stalk of autumn raspberries that have finished producing fruit? Was raking leaves in the garden and wanted to have a little tidy up but was not sure whether to cut them down now or wait a while? Any advice appreciated. Thanks



Hi, yes you cancut back autumn fruiting canes, but the summer fruiting types should only have the old stems cut back, leaving the new shoots to fruit next year, Derek.
