RE: Re: blackberries/gardenias

No, Pam, they don't behave any better up north.  Dad LOVED his blackberries,
so bought 3 plants and stuck them in the far back corner of the back yard.
He had a heart attack that year, so he didn't have the normal time he took
to prune and maintain them.  Pretty soon, he had a blackberry back yard.
The funny thing is that he only had blackberries, but the next year, he
found raspberries coming up in his blackberries.  I figure he must have an
avian help to plant those seeds! LOL!  Watch out for the briars on those

That's why we put our boysenberries in raised planter boxes.  We didn't want
them getting loose!

I hope blackberry vines are better behaved up North.  They run wild here
Well, I did break my oath to never purchase a non-xeriscape plant again.
Bought a dwarf gardenia today when I went to McDade's for lemon verbena
and lava sand.

It's in a large pot so I can control the soil pH and will be on the
prowl for whiteflies. Found that sweet myrtle too that Jesse was looking
for. Didn't know they got 10' tall. So I made room for it out there
along the tree/shrub line. Just about using a shoe horn out there now. I
must be bonkers. Had to dig up a four o'clock tuber the size of a yam.
Wow. Monstrous thing. Just starting to drizzle now, so my timing was
lucky. Good thing too - really overdid it w/ my back this morning.
