I am wanting to put a blackberry hedge up along the back of my property, approx. 120' worth. My questions are:
1. What variety grows best in Utah? I am looking for some height (8') here, as well as a good fruiting variety.
2. What type of irrigation (sprinkler system) should I anticipate to water these plants?
3. When is the best time to plant? Where is a good supplier?
4. What kind of growth rate can I expect? A couple vertical feet per year?
Thanks for any information. Thus far I'm only good at vegetables and I'm looking to widen my horizons (as well as provide some privacy)
