I'm just curious because starter instructions I've seen from older books called for hops, presumably to ward off bacteria. I just assumed that was abandoned due to the cost and the fact that good sanitation made it unnecessary.
Now the thinking is hop resins can prohibit cell budding to some point.

Ithought they only fruited on second year canes? or is that blackberries?Summer bearing raspberries produce on second year growth. Ever bearing varieties produce on 2nd year growth in the summer and first year growth in the fall. Some people chop them back and go with the fall crop only to keep the plants more manageable.
