Transplant/rowing blackberry bushes
I want to row my blackberry bushes. What is the best time of the year to do this and how deep do I have to dig to get the right amount of root on the bush? Thank you.

The best time for transplanting blackberries is spring or fall, so now would be the time to get the project done. Select a transplant site that provides full sun, air circulation and is well draining.

Also, it may help to do it in the evening to reduce stress/transplant shock, and be sure to include as much of the roots as possible. If you have not already done so, you may want to prune your blackberry bush as well.
