John Elwood from Andover, NJ United States
I ordered 37 blackberries of three varieties this year. Upon arrival, I planted them promptly in well-drained, improved soil. While I didn't see emergent growth on many for a while, I held off from judgment to let delayed shoots appear. Some did. No I can give a true count. Cherokee: 4 dead of 12 planted; Shawnee: 10 dead of 15 planed; Comanche: 6 dead of 12 planted.
