I've always thinned raspberries to a few new strong canes in the early spring, as this is how berry growers in puyallup valley do it.

but i heard rumor (dave) about heading off the canes. is this in addition to thinning in spring? or as another way of pruning altogether?

(okay, i heard you talking about it but wasn't paying attention, obviously!)

Kelda,

All of your raspberry pruning questions should be answerd here: http://ohioline.osu.edu/hyg-fact/1000/1421.html.

A great article on how to manage raspberries on a small scale.

Lovely! Lots of info!

Except for shocking omissions of the Puyallup favorites: Tulameen and Meeker. Hmmm. I shall ask local raz growers if those varieties warrant which pruning technique and report back.

Tulameens I think are popular all over Western Washington and I should share that info!
