Q.Can You Trim Blackberry Bushes In Fall
I just moved to a home north of Charlotte, NC and there are a lot of untended blackberry bushes that I would like to trim back to encourage healthy growth next year. Is it too late in the year to do this without hurting the plants?

Generally, pruning is done in spring or late summer, but since the plants are overgrown, you can go ahead and shape them up now and then begin other forms of pruning once spring arrives to get the bushes back where they should be and producing for you.
