Q.Blackberry seedling

Zone 46142 | meleetaylor added on October 25, 2017 | Answered


Long story short, winter is coming (we have a frost advisory here tonight in central Indiana) and I have this blackberry plant seedling growing in my backyard. It has maybe 5 leaves but is barely an inch tall. What can I do to save it? Will it survive the winter or should I dig it up and plant it in a pot for the winter (bringing it indoors, of course)?

If you are ever in doubt, dig it up and bring it in. Just make sure to dig wide to salvage as many roots as possible. You will want to plant outside in spring the first chance you get. These won't survive more than a year or so in container.
