blackberries.

If you are going to transplant a blackberry remember it fruits on the growth it makes this year. So you can dig a root up now. Each year cut down the fruiting shoots after you have picked the blackberries. You will get bigger fruit if you restrict the plant to 3 canes to each root. That means 3 canes will be fruiting and you only allow 3 new canes to grow.
