Blackberry is a very nutritious fruit, is a rare nectar plant. So how do blackberries propagate? Let's take a look at how blackberries are propagated.
The hard branch cutting propagation method of blackberry is carried out in the winter. Robust and substantial without pests and diseases of the branches cut growth 8-12 cm, with 2-3 bud cuttings, sand, early spring bud (about in summer before and after cuttings) are selected. Place the cuttings in the ground 3-5 cm, and insert 40-50 strips per square meter. Fill it with water and cover it with straw, then keep the soil moist often. The survival rate of the hard branch cutting propagation method of blackberry can reach 40-50% when the management is good, and more than 60% when the management is high, and the nursery can be left in the winter of the year. There are still a lot of roots left in the soil after cutting nursery, which can be used to propagate seedlings. The specific method is winter is applied a small amount of organic fertilizer in nursery ground, shallow turn 1 time, put fertilizer pressure into the soil, in early spring to prepare the ground to make the bed, water when drought 1 time, to April can germinate a large number of root tiller seedlings, every square meter leaves seedlings 20 plants or so, management is the same as general nursery later.
In summer, a new branch cutting propagation method of blackberry was carried out under the condition of a shade shed and automatic spray. The soil of the slotter was mixed with peat and sand at a ratio of 1:1. The roots could be rooted 7-10 days after planting, and the survival rate could be as high as 80-90%. After 1 month, it will be moved to the open field to strengthen management, and the next spring it will be ready to go out.
