Transplanting/propagating wild Dewberries or Blackberries

joewormDecember 8, 2011

Hi all,

As a kid I always looked forward to spring when the family would go out into the woods and pick wild dew berries. These were fairly large sweet berries and we always were able to get plenty for pies and preserves. Think 10 kids and you know we must've been able to pick quite a few!!

I recently found a patch of the dew berries near where I live and would like to transplant some to my property.

Can this be done?

What is the best way to do it?

The dew berries down here south Georgia and north Florida are easy to transplant just keep roots moist and from freezing. My way moving plants dig up all root you can put in 5 gallon bucket with water in bottom you wet potting soil in bucket put roots in that this last for day in cool shade.

Wild dew berries take off in spring with any type you fertilize them compost like chicken litter horse mature use fresh in winter don't pile it on plants a foot clear plant ring. 1/2 5 gallon bucket per plant on top soil.
