Should I prune Anne raspberry plants now?


I bought two Anne raspberry plants.  Should they be cut down now?

I recommend first familiarizing yourself with the plant’s life cycle in our our Extension video (Growing Raspberries), by Extension Specialist David Hanley; the last part of the video specifically deals with “ever-bearing” varieties like your ‘Anne.’ Then move on to this UMaine video (Raspberry Pruning) to learn how to do the actual pruning.
