Pruning Blackberries in 3 Steps via Gardenerd [Video]

Our latest YouTube video shows you how to prune unruly blackberries before spring bud in 3 steps. We won’t say it’s easy, because…well, blackberries have thorns that catch on everything. But if you follow these steps you’ll get the job done efficiently and effectively.

Christy dons her bee suit (you’ll find out why) to prune old growth and dead canes to ready the garden for spring fruiting. If you learn how to prune properly, you’ll stimulate new growth when the weather warms up.

From Gardening Don'ts (1913) by M.C. 31

DON’T be narrow-minded.
Give your neighbour
a bit of that rare plant he
covets, even if there lurks

a tiny hope

that it won’t flourish quite as
well as it has done with you!

From Gardening Don'ts by M.C. 01

Adorable rose succulents are trending in the plant world, and it’s easy to see why. As their name suggests, these cute little plants, grow in the shape of a rose, and while they’re usually green, some can be found in a beautiful dusty pink color. So, is it a succulent, or is it a rose? We spoke to Kim Chen, who runs the popular Instagram account @Rare_Succulent, and Debra Lee Baldwin, the award-winning garden photojournalist, author, and succulent expert, and learned everything you could possible want to know about the popular plant.

Interesting Plant: Cosmos bipinnatus “Cupcake Blush”

Interesting Plant: Cosmos bipinnatus

Discovered this via the article 13 unique and interesting plants to grow in your garden on the Greener Living Blog. There are quite a few plants I will highlight here in future posts. — Douglas

This irresistible new cosmos reminds us of the Sugarplum Fairy. The pale blush petals on this large bloomer are fused together forming a teacup shaped flower. Blooms are as big as the palm of your hand and the edges look like they have been cut with pinking shears. This romantic variety is a mix of single, semi double, streaked and solid flowers. Perfect for wedding work. A must grow!- Floret Flowers
