Summer pruning for soft fruits
There are a lot of advantages to summer pruning; it helps to enhance the colour and quality of your plants. It helps to control vigorous growth while reducing pests and diseases. It can also be risky because if you prune too early, it can result in reducing your Fruit size. July through to August is the better time to summer prune, when the growing season has just stopped. Prune all side shoots growing from the main branches back to 5 leaves.
Currants can go un-pruned for their first year and the second winter it can be cut back by a third. For Grapes, prune strong side shoots back to one bud and their main stems by half their growth. For BlackBerries, cut the canes down to ground level as soon as they have stopped growing. Strawberries do not need to be pruned but the runners should be cut off to conserve the plants energy unless you are going to propagate New plants.
