Transplanting a blackberry bush
We live in western Minnesota and planted a blackberry bush this summer. We want to move it and were wondering if it is best to do in the fall or in the spring.

Generally, the best time for transplanting blackberries is 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.
