Q.Why Are My Blackberry Leaf Edges Are Getting Brown/purple?
I have a fairly young Triple Crown blackberry plant in a container. New leaves are getting brown/purple edges. they do not die, but the plant doesn’t look happy. It is in a well drained potting mix, in a 20 Liter (about 5 Gallon) container. No fertilizer yet. Over watering? under watering? No evidence of pests. Anyone can help? Thx.
