Blackberry plant is usually planted in early spring through seeds or cane cuttings. The plant of blackberry is very easy to grow. It likes to thrive in a warm climate, as in cold seasons the plant may die due to being extremely cold sensitive.
Blackberry plants can be grown both indoors and outdoors easily. In both cases, indoors and outdoors, the plant is obliged to receive good sun exposure, fertile soil with excellent drainage, and organic content.
For a containerized plant, it is made sure that the pot is at least 12 inches deep as its root serves the perennial role.
The seeds of blackberry are quick to germinate within 15 to 20 days. They soon send up shoots that are eager to give out coarsely toothed, oval-shaped leaves.
After about 60 to 70 days of the plantation, the blackberry plant is capable of producing flowers. These flowers fulfill the responsibility of running the process of pollination successfully with the aid of a wide array of pollinating agents.
Soon the flower undergoes post-fertilization changes to make way for the development of fruit. The seeds in the fruits/berries get dispersed by animals, in the form of feces as it is not digested by them.
The root system of the blackberry plant is perennial whereas, its aerial parts are biennial. Simply and sophisticatedly, the aerial parts die every year but the root system stays alive for an ample period to send out new shoots and eradicate the dead ones.
