Now is the time to sharpen your pruners and get out on a sunny day to do some win­ter prun­ing. All pip fruit trees can get a hair­cut, along with ki­wifruit and grapes. Rasp­ber­ries, boy­sen­ber­ries and lo­gan­ber­ries re­quire all old canes to be cut down to ground level. Se­lect the new­est and strong­est canes to bear for next sea­son. Goose­ber­ries and black and red cur­rents need their old wood pruned but re­tain new growth as this will bear fruit next sea­son. Spray your pas­sion fruit and straw­berry plants with a cop­per spray.
