pruning raspberries

Zone 06451 | ksking526 added on April 12, 2017 | Answered

I have everbearing Heritage raspberries, which I usually prune to the ground for a late-summer harvest only. This year I am too late: the weather got cold here in CT, and then warmed up quite a bit, and I'm already at bud break. Should I still prune to the ground, or do I just let them go?

I would still go ahead and prune down to 1 inch from the ground.
This really is the easiest way to go and you will have a fall crop then.
