triple crown blackberry plant in 8-ish gallon container
Recently, I bought a fairly small seedling from a vendor at my local farmer's market. He assured me that if I was careful about pruning my triple crown, I could successfully keep it in a 5-10 gallon container on my balcony.
This means, unfortunately, that I do not have the opportunity to trellis my plant. The only real option open to me is to use a wire cage, and place it rather widely.
I know that since I have the plant in a container, it should naturally stay smaller since the root system is more constrained. I'm just hoping that I'll still get a modest fruit yield.
I would appreciate any help from anyone who's had experience with this, or has any ideas for me!
