The Farmer's Home Journal says: "Col. Young is an observing and practical horticulturist of no ordinary acquirements. Doubtless the large crops he grows are in a great measure due to his judicious management. His practice with raspberries, for instance, is to cut the growing canes when they reach about four feet high, which is generally in July. These canes will then throw out side branches or laterals, which, by the following November, will be three or four feet long. These side shoots are then cut back to six or eight inches long in the spring, and from them grow the bearing limbs, filled with berries. The old canes are allowed to remain after bearing and die out of themselves. In the following spring they are brittle, and easily broken off and taken out of the way".
