Anyone know how to maintain Blackberry bushes. After 5 years of living here I had blackberry bushes appear out of nowhere last summer on the side of my deck and I left them be. This summer they returned and bore fruit. It is my understanding they will not bare fruit in the same spot of the plant next year. I have searched forums but alot info is very vague and no pictures and I don't want to trim or cut the wrong parts.
do you pick the fruit for use?
Yes I eat them! MMMMmmmm I want to trim/prune it in hopes of yielding more next year so I can make at least one pie with them. I also think they will thrive along my fence, especially if I weave them through the links so they can grow and expand and not take over my lawn like they are starting too next to my deck.
I just can't find definitive info and pictures of WHAT to cut and WHEN to cut and or transplant.
I'm excited about getting the last round of raspberries that grow wild along the property of the gun club tonight at Trap.
I get cut up doing it (not good for someone on 8.5mg of Coumadin/day) but the pain/blood is so worth it MMMMMmmmmmm.
