The info in Grand's link is good stuff, better than I could have typed into a readable post. Pruning of the canes is really critical for long term production of the patch, that we have learned. Plan ahead and decide how you want to support them as that will help determine how you lay things out. Mulching helps keep the weeds down and moisture in the ground around the canes. We use lots of maple leaves every fall. I leave the pruning to my wife, she does ours at home and the big patch at her folks and we usually have lots of berrys every year so she must have it figured out!! Mmmm ... got me thinking I need to thaw some to make a short cake tonight:smile1:
