How to Serpentine Layer Blackberry Plants

Serpentine Layering Blackberry Plants

Here is a simple way to propagate your brambles with serpentine layering. Trailing varieties are easier for this method – start with a cane that is easily moved to a pot and flexible. Fill the container with soil and bury the middle of the cane in the container. Cover with a rock to keep in place and leave part of the cane visible on the other side. This will allow it to continue growing forward and you will be able to layer it several more times if desired. The most I’ve done on a single cane is 7 layers!
