I love the comments that are coming in and think it is one of the best functions of the blogging society. I am trying to develop my skills at adding comments as to do so for a blog is different then anywhere else. So when a friend of mine yesterday reminded me of the work to maintain black and raspberries in your garden I decided to start looking up some information on how to do this.
I ran across a site that gave a great deal of help in a short amount of words which really helped me check it out www.gardeningknowhow.com . I found out that blackberries only give berries on stalks that are 2 years old so once they bear fruit on a branch that branch can be cut to the ground during pruning
Raspberries can be cared for the same way as blackberries with the tipping and the pruning of old canes. Here is a good link from the National Arbor Day check it out www.arborday.org . And wikihow has not only information but nice illustrations on how to pick a plant, location to plant, etc… go see www.wikihow.com .
So thank you my friend for reminding of my blackberries as we will grow wild, we blackberry bushes.
