Location for Planting….
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.

Yes, you can plant blackberries but you will want to prepare the soil beforehand to improve the growing conditions for the plant. This article will help with that: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/soil-fertilizers/amending-sandy-soil.htm
