Just cutting Himalaya blackberries stimulates them. As the mounds get
old, the old dead canes shade the crowns and fewer new canes come out.
Cut off the canes without doing anything to the crown and it will shoot
up big, thick new canes larger than the ones removed. I've dug out
crowns that were such large masses of wood they were big enough to saw
up like wood.

My son made a tool from a circular sawblade, cut a notch in it and
handle to be fastened onto a long pole. He can reach it in under the
to cut them off at the base. He sent us one, but our native
TN aren't as hard to deal with. Donna
