We ordered five blackberry bushes this year. They were pruned back to nothing but a stem, about a foot long, and roots. We planted them about three weeks ago but they have not even started producing leaves or anything. We trimmed off about an inch of the top when we planted them. How long should we wait before they start to show any signs of life?
