Raspberry problems

I have some mostly good fruiting Autumn Bliss canes. However, I have a clump in one of the rows which grow vigorously but produce no fruit. This has happened each year. I cut all the canes I have to the ground each winter, as Monty says. Why no fruit on some, then?

    I suspect that the non-fruiting clump is actually a summer fruiting variety rather than Autumn Bliss.  That could have happened after a mix up at the nursery or could even be a natural 'sport'.  Try not cutting that particular clump back when you do the rest in February and you should get a crop in early summer.

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    They could be a different variety,probably a summer fruiting variety.Leave those canes and see what happens.If they are summer fruiting cut the stems after fruiting.image
