Earlier this summer I told you about my struggles in finding a blackberry bush that would survive in zone 4. After much searching I found some on eBay. The seller sent me three little plants (about 4-5 inches tall). I had very low expectations for these to survive since I bought them online, but low and behold, they did awesome! All three have grown so much that I had to put a fence up mid-summer to prevent them from creeping into the other berries nearby. For an added cherry on top, two of the plants had even started producing blackberries. I had really hoped that they would mature in time to try them, but they became victim to the winter cold. I can’t wait to see how these take off in the spring. This was definitely a positive online shopping experience!
