Mid-winter in the garden

I’m not sure why different blackberry hybrid plants in my garden are doing different things at the moment in my garden. My old plant which I’m pretty sure is a youngberry has dropped many of its leaves, as it always does this time of year, but another plant which I think is a different type of blackberry to the other (possibly a silvanberry), based on the shape of the leaves, still has green leaves with no spots attached but is already budding. This plant was planted in the garden about a month ago, in a similar location to the older plant. It will be interesting to see what the plants do next.

Spring is the season for planting new blackberry plants. Have you got one yet? The sooner you plant one, the sooner you will be tasting home-grown, chemical-free stunningly-flavoured summer berries.
