Blackberry Seeds

Posted by momstar 5 (My Page) on

I have wanted blackberries for years. I finally got some Apache Blackberry seeds but I'm not sure what do to with them.

Should I wintersow them? Soak them and plant them in the house for a few months then transfer them out in the spring? Direct sow?

Any advice is appreciated.

RE: Blackberry Seeds

Blackberries are one of those things that are difficult to transplant along with dewberries. I would suggest wsing them and then about 1st to 2nd set of true leaves transplant. Granted they are not like a tree but when planting they are as picky as a tree.

Meaning that how deep they were when they germinated is how deep they need to be when they are planted. No more no less.

If that sounds difficult it might be best to direct sow them but I would protect the critters from eating them that is for sure. Maybe a short term cover, but with plenty of ventilation.
