Wild Blackberry Bush is a Beautiful Berry Producing Hedge

Wild blackberry bush planting may be done in late fall for warmer climates but if you live in a cold area, waiting until early spring is recommended, especially for hybrids that are susceptible to shallow temperatures. Erect, or trailing, the Wild Blackberry is an attractive, bushy looking plant thick with leaves. Planted in fertile soil with good drainage, and full sun, once established, these plants tend to thrive with minimal effort on the gardener’s part. If you have doubts about the quality of your soil, fertilizing with organics is a good idea. Mature height depends on the variety you choose. Allegheny’s, common in the eastern U.S. can grow from 3 to 6 ft., the Californian from 2 to 5 ft., Highbush and leafy flowered are 3 to 6 ft. Tall. The blooming period of the Wild Blackberry depends on the weather and the variety of the plant. Warmer climates bloom from mid-April to early May and in colder areas as late as the end of May. When properly maintained, these hardy plants can live for decades, continuing to produce the luscious black fruits they are known for. They make beautiful hedges and are a convenient source of pure, healthy nutrition. Caution should be taken when picking the berries as the wild plants do have sharp thorns on them. Not only are the berries tasty for human consumption, but for animals as well. Birds, deer, and bears tend to be attracted to them. When the animals eat the berries, it will disperse the seeds allowing more plants to grow.

The dark purple blackberries grow on small bushes, called brambles, and produce ripe fruit in late summer and fall. The shrub starts to bloom in the late winter months as an announcement that spring is coming soon. They begin to flower and set the fruit. They continue to flourish and form berries, which change colors from white to pink to red to dark purple, and then they are ready to harvest. The best months for harvesting are September and October, though they may start in late summer. Make sure they have good drainage available and plants in direct sunlight for optimum results. In warmer climates, you can often expect two or three harvests a year, which means you can enjoy more dishes and desserts made with this tasty fruit.

Wild blackberry plants grow in plant hardiness zones 3-10 (as described by the United States Department of Agriculture). This fruiting plant prefers full sun, without which it will develop slower and produce fewer berries. It prefers neutral to slightly acidic soil that drains well and has high organic content. The plant will grow foliage in the spring, flower and produce berries through the summer and fall (depending on the specific variety) and enter a dormant phase in the winter.

Flowers need to be pollinated to develop fruit, so plants that are co-localized with other pollinator-attracting plants may yield more fruit. The plant invests energy in producing berries to attract small mammals and birds, which eat the berries, then defecate in disperse locations, spreading the seeds. Plant propagation can be accomplished by taking plant cuttings, stripping leaves from most of the cutting, and planting the cutting in moist potting soil with its remaining leaves protruding from the ground. After their first year of growth, plants should be pruned to encourage overall plant health and increased fruit production. Be careful when harvesting berries from wild blackberry plants as they possess thorns or prickles. Plant leaves are fodder for both caterpillars and deer, and also can be attacked by a wide array of other pests.
