Raspberry Canes

I have a large number of late summer/autumn fruiting raspberry canes which provide an abundance of fruit continuously from late summer right through to early October. When we moved to our property, they were so overgrown, that I pruned them right back to the ground straight after fruiting and have done this again last year with no effect on fruiting. However, I have learnt that they should not be cut back until February...any advice here please? I am keen to prune early as they are absolutely smothered in creeping vine leaves.

    Assuming they are still fruiting, you can cut back any time they have gone dormant, generally when the leaves fall off.
