From what I understand, both stores will allow you to pre-order the Bababerry Raspberry bare root. The order may come in around December or January. I did not get an exact cost, but an employee though it would be around $5-6 per bare root plant. I pre-ordered three of them to make up for the one that I accidentally killed with too much Sevin dust. If all goes well, I will have 4 healthy plants in the ground by the end of January. If you would like more information, I provided the link below for Walter Anderson’s main page and a link to their bare root ordering list. They have a big selection.

The berries might be showing signs of slowing down, but there are new shoots growing everywhere, so my guess is that they will go until the first frost. I can tell you with 100% certainty, that these 4 plants will overtake the small trellis that I have put up. At the time, I was thinking that I would have plenty of room. Next spring should be very interesting….

The Black Satin has really impressed me. I first thought that is was less vigorous than the Triple Crowns. How wrong I was!

This Triple Crown Blackberry replaced my ailing Natchez Blackberry. With only a month in the hot summer son, it has 3 feet of new growth seen on the right cane.

Notice the very long cane on the Triple Crown blackberry plant to the right? I estimate this stem to be at least 14 feet after 3 months of growth.

This Marion berry is still potted with 10 foot canes. It will be planted in the fall.

The newest and last addition to the berry patch. It will be planted in the fall. I just do not have the room to buy new berries. 😦

The Ouachita Blackberries are hanging in there. They were clearance plants at Lowes and they have recovered quite nicely. There are two plants that will go in to the ground this fall.

I am happy to see a full recovery for the Natchez Blackberry and will try to plant again in the fall.
