Answer: You should renovate the berry patch now by removing the old, dead canes and leaving the canes that are producing shoots. Thin the plants out so they're 1' - 2' apart. Summer-bearing raspberries bear fruit on second-year canes. Prune the bearing canes off at ground level immediately after harvest. Leave the canes that grow this year because they'll produce berries next summer.Fall-bearing raspberries can have their canes cut down as soon as the leaves fall in the autumn. They will produce new fruit bearing canes the following spring. Once you decide what kinds of raspberries you're growing you should be able to prune them properly, which will help them grow lots of luscious berries.
