About Me Midrange Shopper
Love the idea of thornless berries in my raised bed garden. Unfortunately only 2 of the 5 canes actually sprouted once planted. I have faithfully watered (on rain-free days) and have waited for over a month and yet only 2 have any leafage whatsoever. Just a bit disappointed in the heartiness of the canes and wonder if there will be anything next year.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Still no blackberries
By Longtime Gardener
from Coastal Texas
We planted these canes two seasons ago..didn't really expect a crop last year. But still no berries this year and very little growth. We know it's not the conditions because other berries in the same patch had nice crops both years. I gave 1 star because the plants did live, but they have never thrived, bloomed, or borne fruit.

Jury Still Out
By Novice Gardener
from Thornville, Ohio
Thes canes arrived alive with some growth on them, but have not taken hold very well. There has been no new growth, but they are still alive. Time will tell.
No longevity in the bushes.
By Shirley, the Disappointed One
from Millbrook, AL
The bushes were planted in potting soil near the fence, open sun, and well watered. They died. Every one of the blackberry canes croaked.
Hoping for the best
from Quincy, IL
We are hoping to get berries out of the three that made it. When we got them in the mail we planted them right away. Don't know for sure what happend to the two that didn't make it.
Got them in the mail, didn't look to good. We decided to try them anyway. Two of the five died. We are still hoping to get berries from the remaing three.
