Pruning Blackberry

Blackberry

I have a blackberry bush in my garden that has been growing a little wild on it’s own. It’s all over the place as you can see in the picture above. Now I would still like to have many blackberries year after year so I’ll have to prune it. A blackberry bears fruit on one year old wood so in the winter you cut away the branches that carried fruit this year. Keep two new strong branches to carry the fruit next year.
