I live in Georgia and yesterday I planted a blackberry bush. It is around a foot tall and it looks like a stick in the ground. But there are several leaves growing out of the top, and they seem very healthy. It is at the base of a hill, and it gets around 8 hours of sun a day. How long will it take for it to reach maturity? How big will it get? And if you have any other tips let me know.
