    I was given raspberry plants this spring, planted them and have watched them grow all summer. Some have grown about 3ft some only 1ft. The taller plants are starting to fall over, do these need to be staked or just let them fall. Also, do I leave them alone when winter hits, I'm in michigan and it does get cold. Do they need to be covered in the winter. Thanks
