Black berries are good to eat and easy to grow. They may be a bit too
easy to grow, as they are weeds in some areas. What this means is that when planning your blackberry growing area you must be able to keep themfrom spreading too much. Blackberries shouldnot be confused with dewberries. Dewberries are a native species thatgrown along the ground and do not get over about a foot tall. They can take over, though, and provide little shelter or food for animals, creating an ecological desert. Blackberries grow upward on canes.
They, too, can take over a pasture and leave it useless.
Blackberries, however, have been somewhat domesticated and produce loads of tasty berries. These berries make it worth the trouble to grow the blackberry.  Blackberries produce berries on canes that are a year old, so won’t bear for the first year after they are planted.  They makeyou wait a year to get their goodies.
Blackberries like well drained, sandy soil with a pH of 4.5 to 7.5.
They really grown best at a pH of around 6.0 to 6.5.  Blackberries will grow in heavy black clay soils and really thrive in raised beds.
Warm weather friends, they grow in zones 7,8, or 9 and require weekly irrigation once they are established.
