Natchez Blackberry Wilting and Sad
I posted on the container forum, but it was recommended that I might get better information here.
I have a Natchez blackberry that was a sad stick last summer when I bought it, but it has turned into a sprawling, vital monster and made three babies, too. I up-potted it into a 20 gallon smart pot from its previous 3 gallon plastic pot (both were Al's 5-1-1) and trellised it.
Less than 24 hours after this, it's incredibly droopy and wilty looking, and this has not improved in the last couple of days. I did notice belatedly that the spot I built the trellis in is not as sunny as I'd like, but my husband suggested it's because the plant is not used to having to get water/nutrients "up" rather than "across."
I have no idea because I am not used to berry/trellised plants at all. Any thoughts or suggestions?
