Raspberry canes

hi can someone help me figure out my raspberry canes. I bought them in feb/march with the info of them being summer fruiting. They started flowering and fruiting September and october still with flowers on them, so when do I cut them back?

    They sound like autumn rasps.  the berries are often bigger and darker than the summer variety

    if you see signs of new growth I would think they may be summer, don't prune until you are sure

    summer canes fruit next year on this years growth, autumn can be cut to ground level in Feb.

  • That’s what I thought and I took pictures of the tags to make sure i knew what kind I had. it definitely says summer on them, so that’s why the confusion with when I should cut back. They’re Polana From b&q. 

    ill have a look to see whether there’s more new growth Tomorrow and ill cut the ones that have fruited and see what happens next year then
