John Bunker, sounds like a worthwhile movie
The blackberries I got from you to trial all got killed to ground by mice -
but one, so it will provide a good test - as we had minus 40F - and it is
now showing signs of blooming.
My question for you , or anyone.....
The shoots coming up from the roots, are they true to the parent? I remember
something called 'chimeras' in blackberries and had the impression
root-grown offsping of some rubus are not true.
