Propagating Blackberries – Rooting Cuttings

I just posted a new video on Blackberry propagation.
If you would like to learn how to do this, take a few minutes to check it out.
Here’s the Video:

    In the last couple of months I have binge watched all of your gardening videos from the last 5 years; and to say I have learned a lot about gardening and life is an understatement! Utilizing your blackberry propagation techniques, I have turned my single, one year-old Triple Crown plant into 8 additional clones and am plotting to transplant them all into a new 50′ run.

    Quick question, how have you been able to transplant the propagated, rooted “cuttings” from the 5-gallon bucket without damaging the tender roots? During the propagation process, in my eagerness to see how well the cuttings were rooting I took a peak at their roots and they soon died after re-planting. (sigh)

    Thank you very much for all your help!

      I thought I had a vid on that, but not sure.
      Hard to describe, but here’s the way I do it.
      I lay the pot on it’s side… and sort of “spill out” the potting mix and cuttings onto a table… then gently separate them into smaller pots.
      Don’t just pull them out of the pot. That will pull off most of the roots too.
      Here’s a video of me doing tomato transplants…
      Hope that helps,

    Excellent pointers on propagating! I’ve had 100% fail rate using other methods propagating my blackberries so I will be using this system this fall. Thanks for the tips!
