It's a delicate situation but you can eradicate the poison ivy without harming your blackberries. Cut the vines at ground level and immediately paint the cut stubs with Round Up. The product will move down through the root system but will not translocate into the soil. Round Up breaks down in the presence of sunlight and fresh air and does not remain or move in the soil. Best wishes with your eradication project!
