Blackberry Plants


fuzzybugg4 added on October 8, 2016 | Answered

I read about problems with blackberry bush not producing. Mine is over 6 years old and never has bloomed or produced fruit. It has put out new plants and spreading. Maybe it is the soil. Should I try and transplant next spring to better spot? The rest of my garden is fine. Get plenty of vegetables. I live in southern New Mexico.
