Runners or canes? Williamette

    1 responses

gbw starts with ...
Hi, I have a Williamette Raspberry planed about six months ago. It is spreading quickly with long runners along the ground - but nothing vertical like a sturdy self-supporting 'cane'. Are these runners actually canes, and thus I should be supporting them against a vertical structure, or are they suckers and I should be trimming them? Do I wait for vertical canes to just shoot up, I'm not sure whether to prune these long things to keep the plant in check, or whether they should be supported. Thanks!

The canes will need supporting, not a lot though. You can put a couple of long star pickets in at the ends of each row. Run a wire/line at about 3 feet off the ground and another at the top. Tie the canes to the wire as they grow and if they get really long, wind them along/around the top wire.
