    You cut everything down to ground level 'in winter'. Before February. :)

      Agree with @noisette47 , though you could let a few of those 12" tall shoot grow on and they will likely give some summer fruit as well as the new autumn fruiting shoots that come up in spring.

      Believe there is little difference between summer and autumn types, just that the Bliss can give good fruit late in the seasons if forced to fruit on the new years growth.
