Although the bare root you receive from TN Nursery might look small now, it will mature in just a few growing seasons.

That means the canes grow, bear fruit, then die back; however, fresh canes will emerge to replace the dead ones. Annual pruning, either at the end of the season or early spring before flowers develop, will keep a wild blackberry bush in good health. They prefer soil that drains well, and you should plan to fertilize them once yearly during late spring. Because the wild blackberry bush is a native species, it is drought-tolerant. It prefers about an inch of water per week, mainly as it produces blossoms and berries. However, it is resilient and can tolerate short dry spells.

Sphagnum Moss - 5 Square Feet$32.99
Sphagnum Moss (Spagnum centrale) Sphagnum Moss: You might better recognize spaghnum moss by its more widely known name, peat moss. This mossy plant is beloved by gardeners who cultivate this moss to add nutrients and retain moisture in their soil. Gardeners in drought-prone areas benefit from using sphagnum moss as a ground cover plant to minimize their need for water.

Amending the soil with dead sphagnum moss can help increase the garden's moisture retention, absorbing water not allowing to go in the ground. Besides being fantastic for adding nutrients and locking in water, sphagnum moss provides lovely green foliage that spreads relatively quickly. It's a beautiful addition to any shade garden. Sphagnum Moss Contributes to a Healthy Ecosystem Some call sphagnum moss an environment manipulator. As it grows, it can change the makeup of the ecosystem. Sphagnum absorbs minerals like magnesium and calcium and then releases hydrogen ions acidifying the environment. This process makes growing Sphagnum centrale an ideal way to acidify more alkaline soils naturally without using harsh chemical treatments. Some plants that benefit from this acidification process include berries, orchids, tomatoes, and other fruits. Sphagnum Moss Retains Water Like Nobody's Business You might call sphagnum moss a moisture magnet. This mossy plant has a cell structure that retains significant amounts of moisture. The plant has a barrel shape with tiny, sponge-like openings that pull in a surprisingly large amount of water. After it collects the humidity, sphagnum moss expels the water into the surrounding area. As the peat moss continues reproducing and expanding its footprint, it creates puddles around it that grow in size with the expansion of the spread of the moss. As older sphagnum dies, it adds nutrients to the soil and will decompose slowly, becoming an excellent, moisture-rich compost and potting mix. Sphagnum moss should be part of your plan to grow a more resilient, self-sufficient garden.
