For the best crops next sea­son, ap­ply a 5cm-thick or­ganic mulch along your rows of rasp­berry canes. Use home-made gar­den com­post, well-rot­ted or­ganic sta­ble ma­nure or bagged soil con­di­tioner for the mulch. Soak the soil thor­oughly be­fore ap­ply­ing the mulch and keep it away from the base of the canes. This mulch will hold mois­ture in the soil and help feed the de­vel­op­ing fruit next sea­son.

A thick mulch will also pre­vent weeds grow­ing
