bare root blackberries
I bought four bare root raspberries (2 each from 2 different places) and two blackberries (1 each from 2 different places). This is my first experience with bare root plants (although I also bought seven bare root roses this spring and all are putting out leaves!). I put the berries in the ground about six weeks ago, but didn't put anything special on the roots. All of my raspberries have started to put out leaves, but I haven't seen any signs of life from either blackberry. They just look like sticks in the ground. Do blackberries take longer to "wake up" in the spring than raspberries do? Should I just have a bit more patience, or are they probably dead?
