Prune canes that held fruit in summer during the autumn, cutting them right back to the ground. Tie in about eight of the strongest new canes from each plant to fruit next year, and remove the rest.
In mid-winter, cut back weak top growths.
Prune plant in mid-winter, cutting the old canes back to ground level.
