HARRY BOND asked 15 years ago

The fruit/veg garden has been neglected for the past few years, raspberry canes have suckered all over ( var. Glen Clova). We wish to clear unwanted canes, keep the good ones and renew the garden for veg. and fruit. Advice needed on clearing/spraying and re-fertilising.Starting early October.

Lift the best canes and re-plant them in a row. Cut down weeds and spray with Roundup and dIg over the area. Apply some general fertilizer in spring, about 50g per square metre and rake it in.
