Black and purple raspberries do not need a trellis, although you may wish to use a simple trellis like that described for the primocane-fruiting types. Four-wire trellis with cross arms. Cross arms for the top two wires spread out the fruiting canes and leave room for new primocanes to grow between the wires.
