To grow your successful blackberry patch, you must first decide what type of blackberry you’re going to use.

You can get wild blackberries, raspberries, and thornless ones. All will mix and mingle to create a unique fruit, unlike any others.

The more advised is the torn less as a patch of blackberries is a chore to work through and is even worse if the stems have sharp thorns coming from them. The place that you pick for the patch should be in full sun but can be in the shade as they thrive there too. The place needs plenty of room as the plants tend to grow out of their boundaries and quickly make an impassable area. The plant's fruit is ripe in midsummer and is colored depending on its type of plant.

The patch can be grown by seed or by live plants (wild or nursery was grown). If it is grown from seeds, the plants may need to be fertilized before they are planted and watered heavily afterward. The live plants must be planted in a whole twice the size of their root ball with plenty of room. The fertilizer should then be added and heavily watered these plants do not require large amounts of water but thrive if given large amounts. The fertilizer can be any kind (artificial to cow manure) and may not be needed as they tend to adapt easily. Other plants are suggested to help pollination.
