Boysenberries are a cross between blackberries, raspberries, and loganberries. They are fairly easy to grow and are well worth the reward! Boysenberry bushes can grow very tall and will require a trellis to help support the height. Boysenberry bushes will continue to give fruit year after year, however it usually takes a year for the plant to first produce berries. You can cut any canes that produce fruit at the base after the season is over since they won’t produce again.
Avocado is a tasty and unique addition to any garden or indoor grow area! Although most avocado trees do best in moderate temperatures, there are some that can tolerate freezing temperatures. Avocado can be planted by seed or transplanted from a nursery. It’s more of a guaranteed method by taking a graft from a tree. A transplant could produce fruit within 2-3 years, whereas if you grow from seeds it can take 8 or more years.
