Blackberry Plants from Root Cuttings

Blackberry Plants from Root Cuttings

I picked up a tip layered blackberry plant and found it had roots growing from the bottom on the container. I decided to cut the roots so I could move the tip layered blackberry plant and then I dug up the largest root and made 3 cuttings.

You can watch the whole process in the video above.

Propagate your brambles with tip layering so you can share with family and friends. This works easier with trailing varieties, but I have successfully done this with others as well. Take a cane and bring the tip of the plant down into a plastic clear cup. I use the clear cups so you can easily see if roots have started after a few weeks by looking at the bottom. After the roots have been visible for 6 weeks or longer then I will separate from the rest of the cane and you’re all set. Reusing old plastic cups makes it simply to share and give away to those wanting to grow their own blackberries.
