Growing blackberries in container is very simple!
We love fruits of all kinds. However, in our eyes, the growing space is limited.
In order to create space, we have made our back garden into a half container garden in the year 2013.
A Raspberry plant would be interesting; however; we preferred a thorn-less blackberry.
We have selected an almost bare; 42cm tall (excluding roots) blackberry, Rubus fruticosus 'Thorn-less Evergreen' (Braam in Dutch) plant on 16 November 2013 (above picture 1).
The moment you discovered a baby Lady beetle was born between the leaves (picture 6), you knew that you need to be more alert of the Aphids.
Blackberry Plant's Developments
I truly enjoy seeing the contrast of one whole totally red cluster of berries (picture 25); with another cluster of red and black mix (picture 23).
11. You can see the plant need not much space (above picture 41) to develop further; if you put it in a container.
12. You can spray water on the pockets (picture 43) of the old shoots even you see them dry like a cane. They might surprised you with a new growth.
13. The plant is growing one new shoot every year (picture 42&44) in the mid-spring. And you have to re-arrange all the shoots to give it rooms to develop; once it appeared.
