“ autumn” raspberries all fruited in summer
« on: October 18, 2020, 09:42 »
Last year I bought and planted Autumn Bliss form the RHS website. It fruited in July/ August.  I’m wondering 1) did they make a mistake and send wrong variety and 2) when should I prune. I guess I have missed the boat for summer pruning anyway, which I gather is straight after pruning. So I guess I should do it in late winter? Any other care I should do now. As grass is taking hold I’m thinking of putting rotted manure around the stems.

The autumn ones generally start between late July and early August and then go on into the autumn, so I think you are OK with the ones you have.

The pruning is very easy.  Wait a few weeks yet until the leaves are off and the canes are dormant, then cut them right down to just above ground level.  Your new canes for next year will spring from the base.

They love mulch, so manure is a good idea  :)

Thanks new shoot, really concise and clear  :). I’ll wait till the leaves are dormant.

They do seem to have been a little earlier this year and finished sooner but a July start is not unusual. They have a long fruiting season though so well worth growing.
