Plant easy-care Chester Thornless blackberry bushes, and harvest a solid crop within two years. The medium-size berries are sweet and juicy, perfect for eating fresh, or turning into pie, preserves, wine or liqueur.
Berries and other so-called small fruits generally don't require as much space as full-size fruit trees, and by growing several different types, you can enjoy home-grown fruit from early summer through late fall.
Dreaming of a backyard berry patch? An asparagus bed? Start with a raised bed. A raised bed isolates the perennial crop from invasive weeds and grasses that might creep into the growing area. All have shallow roots that don't compete well with weeds and that can be damaged by aggressive weeding tools.
