Questionable stems on blackberries
Stems coming up with the blackberries are very similar but the blackberry stems have 3-leaf clusters and the new growth has 5-leaf clusters and, as yet, no evidence of fruit. I do not know if other blackberry varieties have a different leaf arrangement. Do you have a suggestion?
