Raspberry shoots

When we first came to live here 6 years ago, one of the first things I planted was raspberries.

Rightly or wrongly (probably wrongly), I planted them in the main flowerbed.

It’s nice to have them right by the house to pick, but it makes tending other plants fraught with danger.

Walking round roses to prune them, I’m very likely to step on one of these tiny raspberry shoots.

The canes have suffered enough from the cold, without the added disadvantage of my great hooves!
