Au­tumn rasp­ber­ries, as they will al­ready be pro­duc­ing fruit on the cur­rent sea­son’s stems, so leave cut­ting un­til they’ve fin­ished.

Ten­der shrubs, which may pro­duce late soft shoots that will be eas­ily dam­aged by win­ter frost.

Spring-flow­er­ing shrubs, as you run the risk of cut­ting off the flower buds that will be pro­duced next sea­son

Or­na­men­tal grasses, which will ben­e­fit from the pro­tec­tion of their top growth over win­ter and whose seed­heads will pro­vide win­ter in­ter­est.

Prune au­tumn rasp­ber­ries in mid-win­ter
