Freeing The Loganberry

loganberry-1After finishing off the major digging projects of the winter, I’m starting to move onto other tidying jobs.

This week I’ve manages to clear all the grass from around the long-suffering loganberry bush. It’s often fairly productive, but as it’s also unkempt and overgrown it isn’t very easy to crop.

My masterplan this year is to stake out it’s branches quite a long way along the bed – maybe as much as 10 feet – over weed membrane. The hope is that (a) it will cover more ground, and (b) make cropping a whole lot easier.

As you can see from the buds, all this work is happening not a moment too soon thanks to the ridiculously early arrival of spring!
