Hi - I want to plant Tayberry and Blackberry plants at the allotment (maybe Japanese Wineberry too). I want to use a local nursery I've used before. The lady there tells me she will have her plants in in February. I read that now is the best time to get them into the ground so they are well established come spring. Would it make much of a difference to wait untl February? Thanks for any advice.

If they come in pots they can be planted anythime so long as the ground is not frozen. Id wait until feb now as we may get hard frost and snow (if not lots of shops will have a sale of salt and shovels for spring) Nature will do its own thing anyway.

Thanks Greengage. Was doing a bit of joined up thinking and considering they wont fruit until summer 2013 anyway, it probably wont be a disaster to wait until February.
