|i have several black satin blackerry plants that are in their second year of production and would like to know more about care of them. are the black satin erect, semi-erect aor trailing type of blackberries? what is the best way of pruning and training this type of berry? will the canes that drop to the ground and set a root system produce berries if replanted? thanks for your information marshall ratliff
|Black Satin is sometimes listed as an erect variety, but since it is a bit long for that you also see it listed as a semi-trailing variety. You may want to experiment a bit and see which training method works best for you with the spacing you used when you planted them. General care and pruning/supports are discussed in detail in the publication below.
This variety will runner, this is discussed in the following article along with propagation by tip layering.
Enjoy your blackberries!
