    I just trim off the dead wood each spring when you can see what isn't budding. If you trim the rest of the canes that are budding you will be taking off the potential for a lot of raspberries.

    you can prune the growing shoots in late july to keep them shorter and it will not hurt their producing capacity for the next year and often make them easier to pick.

      By trimming them it also helps them stand up strIght so you don't have to tie them.

    If you get berries that bear on new growth you won't get thorns if you cut the berries to the ground each winter. There will be little prickles but thorns come from woody stems. If you choose to cut the canes 3 ft above ground in late fall you will have early spring above ground growth from the retained canes that produce an early crop of berries. New canes will soon erupt from the ground that will give you a second later crop. The 3ft canes left to overwinter will have woody priclkes, but they are far from thorns. Cut out all the old canes when they are done bearing to make room for the main crop.
