Blackberry Plants

Blackberry Stuff


jimpeterson added on March 4, 2016 | Answered

I want to raise blackberry plants and would like to end up with enough fruit for my family, and enough to share with a couple friends. I want a sweet berry, with a little tartness, just right for cobblers and pies. How many plants should I buy, and would it be worth spending a few more bucks for 3 year old plants instead of 2 year old? Any help will be appreciated, as I am not the sharpest pencil in the box, when it comes to planting things. Thanks, Guys, jim Peterson Carson City, Nevada
