Blackberry primocane or flurocane

    7 responses

MatthewT starts with ...
I just bought a blackberry in pot from bunnings. There are 1 long and 1 short canes. They both look green with some new leaves growing but some turn yellow. Are they primocanes? If they are both floricanes, I will have to wait for 2 years for fruits...

Hi Matt

I would consider your blackberry canes floricanes which means they will flower and fruit after one year as opposed to primocane which flower and fruit in the same year. It's too late in the season now for fruit production with your bramble.

Happy gardening :-)

Hi Matt

Yes, they should flower next spring and also more suckers will come up. After fruiting cut away all the old canes that bore fruits. Prune them (old stems) during the dormant season the new suckers will replace the old growth. Just do the same regularly after that complimented by regular watering and feeding.

Happy Gardening :-)

Today found some new shoots near the crown. Are they suckers? If suckers, should I remove them? It seems weird to have new canes growing at this time, even though the weather is still warm...

Hi Matt

Your blackberry bush is still nice and tidy and certainly not overcrowded so you can still keep a few of this primocane suckers and hopefully they will become floricanes during next season (summer) and bear tasty morsels for you and your family.

Happy Gardening :-)

Unfortunately the 2 floricanes (primocanes last year) doesn't have any flowers. The 2 floricanes are relatively thin but still have new shoots. There are 3 new thicker primocanes this summer. Is there any reason why the floricanes are not flowering?
