blackberry / raspberry cross pollonation
« on: August 20, 2007, 07:06 »
I was planning to plant several blackberry bushes this Autumn but my plot is so small that they will be very near to my raspberry canes. Is there likely to be a problem with cross pollonation?

I haven't had a problem but read somewhere that it might be.  At least, my rasps came out as rasps and my blackberries look like blackberries so am assuming all is well!

fear not  :lol: the modern  bramble and raspberries are self pollinators and dont need insects so they cannot be x pollinated, all rasps .brambles etc are members of the rose family   :wink:

Thanks for the advice - that has certainly set my mind at rest. I thought I might have to change my carefully laid out plans for my big Autumn move-round.
