I have gardened in Liverpool for years by trial and error. This year's new focus is to get the most veg out of four small raised beds.

Is it right that it flowers on last years wood....I need to know so I know what to chop back when the time comes...🤔

comment
sadieberg

They need to be pruned to create little 'Spurs' like fruiting Spurs on apple trees. That is you cut back after flowering and through the summer to about 5 leaves, then in January you cut back further to 2 leaf nodes which makes like a finger which is the fruiting spur from where the flower buds grow. I don't explain it well but there is a lot on t'internet on how to do it. It is one of those unforgiving plants that insists on you doing it properly, good luck Elaine @wagsmomthompsonbtinternetcom

Thanks Vivien...it’s actually 10 years old and this is the first time it’s flowered...having said that I did give it a good chop back early spring but only to tidy it up. Thanks again..👍🏼
