blackberries vs grapes
Sooo, I decided to start a little garden this year. Of course silly me, just went out and bought whatever was the cheapest and/or easiest to find. NOW of course I need to do a little research so I don't totally waste my money ;)
The tag on the plant stake says "#1 Chester Blackberry"
There are 3 main "trunks" in the pot, so I figure I essentially have 3 seperate plants?
My dad said I can plant them with the grapes, since there's stakes and wires for vines to follow. The grapes (concord) have been there 30+ years and are looking quite raggedy and getting less and less productive. Will the blackberries take over, or will the foliage (which does a lot better than the fruit) of the grapes choke them out/down?
My only other option is to keep them in a container on the patio, but I've read that blackberries don't do well (give as much fruit) if they're contained.
