Pruning Raspberry Plants

Pruning is not only an important part of proper raspberry plant care and maintenance, it is also a way to ensure and improve the development of the fruit crop. Here are a few things to remember when pruning your raspberry plants:

  • Not everyone will prune the exact same way – including the experts.
  • It is preferable to do some pruning rather than no pruning.
  • If a raspberry plant is left unpruned, it may become tangled and overgrown and may even be unfruitful as a result.
