ORGANIC BLACKBERRY (Rubus Ursinus) Sweet Edible Fruit Garden Shrub
○ GROWING METHOD
Step 1 Place the Blackberry seeds in a resealable plastic bag along with a handful of peat or garden soil. Seal the bag, write the date on it and put into the refrigerator. Keep the seeds chilled for at least 3 months.
Step 2 Fill a seed tray with seed raising mix, and spread the blackberry seeds on top of the soil. Lightly cover the seeds with soil, moisten lightly and place in a warm, dark area..
Step 3 Once seedlings begin to sprout (3-4 weeks), move the tray to an area with bright light such as a window sill or balcony. Prepare a final position with full sun and composted soil with good drainage.
Step 4 Transplant when the seedlings reach about 10-15cm. Space at least 4 feet apart, and once transplanted, add a 5cm layer of mulching around the base of each seedling. In average conditions, Blackberry bushes generally begin to fruit around 2-3 years.
