How to support summer fruiting raspberries
I've inherited some summer fruiting raspberries on my allotment that are now doing well after a lot of feeding last year. They are unsupported so drooping badly so I want to put in a support to help for next year's crop.
The canes having come up (this years and last) in roughly a two metre circle. Do I just use posts to create a single line of support as suggested in books? It seems to me that two parallel lines about a metre apart might be better. It would mean fewer canes on each support and easier weeding (lots of grass grows). Is there a reason not to do this?
Any advice appreciated.
