So you’d like to plant a blackberry patch at home. Well, if a home grounds blackberry patch is the thing that flips your cork, don’t plant or seed anything (take my advice . . . or the advice of Rob Winks, assistant manager of the Division of Forestry’s Vallonia Nursery here in Indiana). Instead build a fence in summer where you want the plants. Let the birds rest (on the fence) and let them “plant” blackberry seeds when this berry is ripe. Then you can take down the fence. Many seeds won’t germinate unless they have been ingested by a bird or animal.
