Hi! I live in central Florida, and I was wondering if I can plant a blackberry bush here? We have a lot of sand, but a lot of sun as well. Could you please give me tips, as I am not a gardener by trait or green thumb. I realize the sand is not good to plant on, so what do you suggest? Thank you for your help! Jessica S.
