Recently acquired thornless blackberry bushes. Our ground is acidic. Is this good for blackberry bushes or should I sweeten the ground with lime?

They like a pH between 5.5 and 7, so it really depends on how acidic your soil is whether it is too acidic. Have the soil tested and then adjust the pH of the soil into this pH zone according to your soil test.
