Re: [nafex] Blackberry vine collection

Hi Doc,
I found three websites [using PlantFacts - 
http://plantfacts.ohio-state.edu/] that address blackberry propagation 
techniques.  Hopefully they will give you some ideas and options.

Propagating Deciduous Fruit Plants Common to Georgia - most comprehensive 
site I've found, with detailed steps through the different propagation 

Blackberry and Raspberry Culture for the Home Garden - Recommends both root 
cuttings and relocating naturally-occurring sucker plants.

Plant Propagation by Leaf, Cane, and Root Cuttings: Instructions for the 
Home Gardener  - suggests Leaf-bud Cuttings for Blackberry
