    Himalayan Blackberry - Need Help

    I understand that most people are trying to get rid of the himalayan blackberry plants, but I am looking for some. I want a blackerry plant the speads and will continue to grow on my property. As I understand, these berrys are good to eat also.

    I have not found a place to buy these as many consider them a pest due to how fast they spread. If any of you have them on your proerty, might I be able to buy some from you?

    I though this was going to be about a new cell phone.

    X 2 With sawdust!!! Guess I just don't why you'd want to plant an envasive species? There's got to be 'controlable' Black berrys out there! Fast growing? Maybe! Sorta like planting Kudzu.......be careful what you wish for.....! I suppose it has it's up side if you wanted to deter tresspassers, for an area you never want to use, etc..........~Scotty

    I have a ditch bank that is 660 feet long. I would like to have it full of blackberries.

    Hmmmm. I too have a similar ditch that needs something better than weeds and grass. Something low maintenance.
