Arapaho Blackberry in Container
Hello Everyone! I am new to this site. I am so happy that I found it as I can see that there is a wealth of information here.
I am growing a blackberry bush in a container. I purchased it as a small twig plant (sorry if I am not using the proper terms)at the beginning of summer. For the most part, it looks pretty healthy and strong however the plant is growing sideways and trailing down the side of the pot. The Arapaho blackberry bush is supposed to grow without staking right? It says that it does not require support which is why I decided to plant this particular variety. It worries me because I have only a small space in which to garden and I am not sure the branches will survive laying on the concrete of my driveway.
So my question is this - do I need to cut back the bush in order to get it to grow upright? Did I possibly buy the wrong bush? Any information offered on this matter would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
