We used to have wild blackberry bushes at the edge of the woods but the privet choked them out so decided to put some in the garden to be certain.

One is doing great and one, not so much
I bought this pack a year ago this month, so I figured it was a good time to review it. The ouachita plants are doing great. They have grown to their full size, and all 3 have grown just perfectly in their first year. The Triple Crown, planted right next to them, simply haven't. I'm in zone 9, and perhaps there's some sort of cut-off where one just does better than the other, but, which the ouachita's are big and healthy, the Triple Crown are not that different than the day I planted them.

Growing well year 2
These plants settled in last year, but this year they have filled the trellis. A few of the plants have new canes emerging from the crown- very controlled. Heavy fruit set thus far

Southern blackberry collection is superb!
This collection is perfect for the Coastal Bend area of Texas, just northwest of Corpus Christi. The plants are big and strong and have red berries this very first season. They are spreading in the patch to fill in the places where the "wrong" type of berries were first planted. Thank you for having what is really right for us here.

Very Pleased with these Good Performers
This is the second year these plants have been in the ground. As Stark Bros. recommended, we removed the fruit the first year, and let all of the plants energy go to growing a root system, This year the plants are already putting on a ton of fruit. We are very happy with the two varieties in this collection

Ouchita Thumbs Up... Tripple Crown... not so much
These berries struggled with our California summer during the first year. 5/6 triple crown died despite automated watering and planting them in rich soil. The Ouchita did ok the first year but no fruit. This year they came up with a vengeance! Love the hardy look of the vines and I've got lots of green berries growing strong. Will plant the Ouchita again but the triple crowns I'd pass on. (Might be just me though because it's a popular variety in our zone (9B)

Ouachita Yes, Natchez not yet.
I bought the collection that had Ouachita and Natchez. I planted them both in the same bed and trellised them the same in the fall last year. Both took and produced a lot of vigorous growth. This spring they took off but only the Ouachita has actually produce any berries. It is loaded with big fat berries that are just starting to turn dark red in late May. The Natchez has a lot of growth but no blooms and no berries. Love the Ouachita and disappointed with Natchez. Maybe next year will be the first production on that plant.
