Dawn a blackberry question(s)
Dawn, afew months back you mentioned that you and your brother never trimmed the laterals on your blackberries and they produced just fine. My question is do your vines produce all the way to the end of the lateral, even if it's 12 or 15ft. long or do you cut off the thin end of the lateral back to a certain size. I've read some people cut off anything smaller than a pencil. What works for you? Anyone else have an opinion? Will the vines have bigger and better tasting berries if you trim them back or will you get more berries if you leave them alone.
