Do they creep if planted in the ground?
TROY N on Mar 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This variety sends out lateral branches along the ground. They should be pruned back to 12 inches and they will then run and produce new growth. All varieties of blackberries should be trained to a fence or posts with plenty of air within the leaves. By pruning the laterals to 12 inches you will have a better harvest. Let me explain a bit more. The laterals to be pruned to 12 inches should be the first year. If you have second year vines 4 feet or longer you need to stake these or train to a fence. I use plant Velcro ties to do this. Do not prune huge lengths off your second year vines or you will end up with less harvest. Triple Crown Thornless will stay at ground level, creep and start new rooted shoots if not trained to be upright. Some plants can get as long as 16 feet so you need a lot of space to grow the lateral branches at ground level.

Triple Crown Thornless Blackberry
It is certainly way too early to write a review of how I like the Blackberries as I received them late last fall and immediately planted them. I would like to comment on the packaging as the plants came well watered and protected by both plastic and cardboard inside the sturdy sealed mailing bag. They appeared to be very healthy growing plants, unlike items I've received from other nurseries. I've recently checked on them and they appear to have survived the winter and are ready for spring. Hoping to use them to make wine when they start producing berries!

Not so great
I planted about two months ago,one has already apparently failed,and the others have yet to start growing.I protected the plants against frost.I planted them on raised rows,so there is no drainage problem.It is still late winter,but daytime temps have been in the 70's lately.They may yet start growing as I feel the season is not yet spring.
