Are you able to train brambles onto a trellis?
I have moved into a house with loads of bramles against a fence, (a
the bottom) and as I have children (one of my own and 2 or mor
fostered) I am not keen on the idea of a prickly garden, however we g
bramble picking each autumn, so I'm wondering about keeping them, bu
making them safe.
Any idea's gratefully received.
Thanks, :D That's a good idea to train up tree's too! :) Although m
tree's in the garden are too little to be of any use I expect. I'l
have a go at training them though.
You didn't know they were edible? The fruit? mmm... are we talking sam
thing here ?
Blackberries / brambles same thing to me, have I got it wrong?
No, I did not know you were talking about Blackberries!
Brambles here in Texas are a type of Liana. Not related.
I have thornless blackberries here that I planted and I tie them to
trellis to control them. Works fine!

Here's what www.dictionary.com has to say about brambles:
I knew that berries are prickly from picking berries as a small child.
I thought brambles comes from the prickers as in definition two.
It never occured to me that the origin of the word would go the
other way around - berries to thorns vs thorns to berries.
