Bare root blackberries just arrived already growing, what to do
The Prime-Jan blackberries I ordered just arrived. In good shape but they are no longer dormant. The buds have broken and have about 1/2" of green growth on them. Problem is we are still getting freezing weather here. Typical lows are 20-30F, with an occasional dip down to 10F or so.
Seems like my choices are: pot them and let them grow inside until the weather is warmer. Or plant outside covered with a bunch of mulch and hope the new growth makes it.
