[NAFEX] Cultural advice sought on Gold Raspberries

I have 2 different gold raspberries, Fall Gold and Anne. Both bear in
the summer and fall. Fall Gold stays fairly short and acts sort of like
a red raspberry, but Anne - wow, it rebears on the primo and
flori-canes, doesn't seem to send up new sprouts readily, grows up and
up and over with a huge elongated berry - and altogether acts weird for
either a red or a black raspberry. I am used to black raspberries, and
have read about the red ones, but need some advice on Anne. Does anyone
have any experience with an Anne type raspberry they could share?
Should I mow down, clip down to 2', what - and when?
Stella Otto's "Back Yard Berry Book" is short of advice on the varieties
I'm growing. I treat Fall Gold like an everbearing red, and that seems
to work, but they seem to "lean around" a lot. Is that a symptom of
clumps too close?
Advice would be appreciated!
