    Those are nice!! You could transplant to a more desirable spot this Fall if you choose to. That's awesome though!!!

    Yes that's my plan! Though I read spring is better, and to do a good prune in the fall.
    I'm not sure if they're wild (I assume so...wouldn't be the best place to plant them, but who knows), and we will want other cultivated brambles, so we'll have to make sure we keep it away from the garden. Which is no problem, we've got lots of space.

    Good advice; luckily we can place them it a good spot, and I will add pruning to the yearly chores :)
