    Couple of questions re:raspberries

    1. We have a large patch of raspberries behind the barn. They were not pruned after they fruited last summer- should they have been? Or, should they be pruned now, before they start to bloom? Or, should they be pruned at all or just left alone?

    2. Should we be fertilizing them? If so, when and with what?
