How and when do I prune my Marionberries?

Asked March 25, 2013, 4:30 PM EDT

My Marionberry plants are about 2-3 years old. Last year I prunned them to about 7' but did not get much yield. Now the canes are long, growing up then draping down onto the ground. Should I prune them back or weave and tuck the canes into the bush? Fertilize?? When, how much and what kind?
