Q.

Do you know if blackberry bushes don’t like certain metals

My sister-in-law has some blackberry bushes that are against a wire trellis. Where the bush touches the wire, it dies. Not sure what the wire is made of.

I do not think it is metal toxicity at play here. I believe that the foliage die back you are seeing is because metal is a cold conductor. The foliage touching the cold is dying.
