    We had an abundant harvest of raspberries this year! We just adore these little delight that melt in the mouth! No more fruits from the old bush but leaves are still green although look not so healthy. On the other hand sprouts this spring have grown enormously (I guess thanks to all the compost added) and obviously need more space. Could you tell me if it’s ok to cut the old bush now?

    I don’t see any point for not doing so. The old bush has already spent all the energy it had for the fruits this year and won’t be productive next year anyway. I did it in the past and it was totally okay.

    No problem at all and even recommended. 🙂 It helps new growth bush to be healthy because more light and air can get in. Keeping the old ones will just increase the risk of diseases. Prune now and next year will be another abundant year!

    I never would have thought that, good to know!
