Can You Trim Blackberry Bushes in Fall

Anonymous added on October 3, 2014 | Answered

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?
