New Plants (2009-05-21)Stupid Gardener plucked out our blackberry, the soil had been looking bare and sad. We left that bit of space empty throughout winter as cold weather is not a good time to start growing a berry plant.
Just last week, our replacement for the blackberry arrived from a
store in Osaka that I found online. This time we've decided not
to grow blackberry (although we like to eat the fruit), and settled for
a boysenberry plant which according to wiki is a cross between
raspberry and blackberry. Blackberry plants are widely available
but boysenberry plants are very rare in Japan. When I stumbled
upon them, I knew I had to grow one.
I also got a blueberry plant at a farmer's market to grow in a
pot. With three different berries in our little "front yard",
we'll be the envy of our
neighbors, haha! (if they fruit...) (^_^!)
