How to Grow Blackberry Bushes
How To Grow Blackberry Bushes – here are my tips on growing blackberry bushes based on my experience with blackberry bush plants in US hardiness zone 6a.
Blackberries are the original “living fence”. Around for over 2000 years, blackberry brambles were allowed to grow to thickets to repel unwanted invaders back in the day (the practice may continue today for all I know!). Blackberries are perennial plants. Botanically it is termed an aggregate fruit – a collection of small fruits form the berry.
Where you plant your blackberry bushes is of utmost importance. Choose wisely, and your blackberry bush will grow very well. Do not grow Blackberry Bushes near tomatoes, potatoes, eggplants, peppers – and you probably shouldn’t even plant where these plants have been grown recently. There is no good companion plant for blackberries.
