Sorry, me again. Blackberry bush.
I was a bit over enthusiastic last year with my secateurs and cut my blackberry bush down too far. So I bought one in a small pot , prepared the ground thoroughly and set it next to the fence.
It got to about 8 inches tall quite a while ago but hasn't moved since, and is looking rather sad at the moment. Is there any point in covering it up in a tall cloche or can I do anything else to protect it ? ( too ashamed to add a photo !)



It shouldn't need protection - they're as tough as old boots.
Just leave it/them and let nature take its course.
I'm sure they'll show new growth in the spring.
Patience is the watchword!

No probs Hank. And you don't need to say sorry when you ask a question! Questions are what addicts live for....
