Blackberry Bushes

Anonymous added on August 5, 2011 | Answered

Can you transfer a blackberry bush? It's on a fence with about half shade that seems to be growing ok, but I'm a big fan of them and I want them to grow bigger and produce more. So can I move them into full sun without them dying?

Yes, you can move them and they do fine in full sun. Spring is the very best time to move them, followed closely by early fall.

This article will help you to avoid transplant shock, which is what kills any plant that is not moved carefully:
