Just wondering if I need to cover my blackberry plants with straw or hay? Or do I need to protect them in any way?

If they were planted this year, then it would not hurt to mulch them with straw or leaves to give them a bit of extra protection. If they are established (more than 1 year old), they do not need to be mulched.
