Hi and hello to anyone who might advise me on this. My mom unexpectedly brought me a potted seedless blackberry plant (don't know which variety) last week when visiting and from everything I can find online, blackberries should be put into the ground in Jan-March here in the desert. I'm worried that it might die from the heat if I put it in the ground now.
Can anyone shed light on this: Is it better to put it in the ground now or to wait 8 months before planting it? And, if i plant it, should I plant it in a more north/east exposure, rather than west (hottest) exposure area?
Thanks so much!
