Blackberry Plants

no blooms on blackberry bush

Zone Tennessee outside Nashville | linda.hall added on July 11, 2015 | Answered

My blackberry bushes produced plenty of berries last year. This year the vines are bigger but there were never any blooms. I trimmed back the branches that bloomed last year and turned brown. I have now been told that there should have been branches last year without blooms but there were not any. This year I have plenty of branches but not a single bloom or berry.
