How To Cultivate Raspberries

These can be planted in rows 5 feet apart with a foot-and-a half between each cane, or planted in groups of three canes allowing four feet between the groups. Pruning consists of cutting out old canes each season after fruiting, leaving only new canes to supply fruit the next season.

Some varieties will crop twice in the year if the canes are shortened after fruiting, instead of being cut out entirely when the first crop is gathered. All are cut to the ground each spring.

Lloyd George is still one of the best varieties for the small garden, but others useful are Abundance, Superlative, and Yellow Hammer.
