Anyone successfully growing Triple Crown or Loch Ness in Zone 5b?
I want to add to my blackberry collection (I have Ouachitas currently), and was going to purchase a Triple Crown and a Loch Ness until I read some posts indicating
Triple Crown might not be very winter hardy. If you are growing either variety, do you provide any winter protection?
I want blackberries that are good producers and good to eat fresh, as my little son wasn't in love with our Ouachitas in their first fruiting season this summer, claiming they had a bit of a "sour" taste. (I enjoyed them.) I don't have much room, so can only take on one or two.
Thanks for any input you can give me!
